Remember D-Day

There wasn’t anything in today’s news, but today is the 71st anniversary of the beginning of the liberation of Europe. When I wake up, I try to imagine what it must have been like to be a 20 year old soldier who’s just jumped, waded, or crash-landed into France. I never succeed.

Those 180,000 young men from the United States, Canada, and Great Britain accomplished the task that had to be done. Not all of them lived to tell about it. They were true heroes, even if you don’t read much about them today.

We should never forget this day, nor those who did their job. I won’t.

Today is D-Day.
