Thank a Veteran...

63 years ago today over 156,000 American, British, and Canadian young men stormed the beaches of Normandy, France. Over 9,000 of these brave men lost their lives in this attempt to free mainland Europe from the grasp of Nazi Germany. I myself had a great uncle lose his life at Normandy. These young men did not set out to become heroes but they most definitely did. In a selfless act to overthrow evil they held their lives to be less important than the need for justice to prevail. So again I say... Thank a veteran.
