Hoping everyone recognizes this invasion battle is the sole reason we won the war. The loss of life today was staggering and yet these courageous warriors pushed ahead into deadly fire.

I stood in several of these bunkers in June 1994, the 50th anniversary of the invasion and was overwhelmed by the thought of how many men were slaughtered from the very spot I stood. The cemetery of white crosses perfectly aligned was both sobering and an emotional experience I believe every American should go through. The caissons still on beaches, wrecks in ocean both watercraft and vehicles. It doesn't take much imagination to see in your mind how these men fought through such formidable odds to break through and start the retaking of France.

If you ever have a chance to go there, I highly recommend.

Freedom isn't FREE!

God bless America!
