We all know how important this date was 64 years ago (  and still is)  !! One the heels of Memorial Day, let us not forget the price paid by those who suffered the ultimate sacrifice that day.

A lot of us can identify with you merc, our heros are gone but we are better for having had them.

Everytime I see anything related to D-Day, I get choked up, just as I do when I watch Saving Private Ryan.
 
Every single man who hit the beach that day was a hero.   All of them.
Salute
