D-Day – June 6th, 1944

by ward on June 6, 2012

Operation Overlord. Across the English Channel to Normandy.

Utah, Omaha, Gold, Omaha, Sword.

British, American, Canadian.

Today, June 6th, 1944, Our Boys went up against Their Boys.

Our Boys prevailed.

It wasn’t easy. There was a long way to go.

Today began the end of the Third Reich.

Remember today. Remember Them.

Every year there are fewer of Them left. Soon, there will be none at all.

We shall remember those who stood Between.

Between evil, and us.

So long as one remembers, they shall live in our memories. Shining bright, and forever young.

I remember.

Thanks Dad.
