    Amen to that !

    I recently watched a bio-type movie on Churchill -- I had no idea he was so opposed to the Normandy invasion.
    Apparently, he had a previous bad experience with the same type of aggression.
    This bio-doc also made Eisenhower look like a bad a$$ !!!

    I’m big into Veterans Day, Memorial Day, July 4th....but D-Day seems to stir my emotions more than all the others. I agree; it was probably THE most significant event in modern history. Such a daunting undertaking, with more to lose than most people comprehend. The ultimate stand for humanity.

    Not to take anything away from Veterans of other conflicts, but it truly was our greatest generation. Not just our military, but our civilian society as a whole...as well as the European military and civilians who faced true evil and endured the torment of WWII. Tough as nails.

    Operation Overlord. The beginning to the end of the war. Yes a very important day. Everyone should know about it. I researched it in highschool and I reached out to a few legions to ask about it. The US took beaches Utah and Omaha, Canada took Juno, and the British took Gold and Sword. I remember reading something about Eisenhower delaying the attack because of the weather, catching the Germans off guard. They even placed inflatable tanks and props to guide their attention elsewhere.

    Many were lost. I canít even imagine the landing craft doors opening. Nowhere to hide from the army of MG 42ís on the hill. Iím eternally grateful for their service.

    We fought a 2 front war ( National War College 101: DO NOT FIGHT A 2 FRONT WAR) and we kicked a$$, took some names, and I became a "Baby Boomer".
