    75 Years Ago

    The assault troop are loaded on their ships and await the orders to go. 75 years ago our grandfather, fathers and uncles are loaded on cramped ships and wondering their fate. Remember these common me who in a few days would help liberate millions of people from the evils of the NAZIS.

    Re: 75 Years Ago

    I will be standing on the beaches of Normandy in a couple of weeks....


    I am so excited. I have had my 9 year old son read a couple books (for kids) so he'll have a good idea as to why his ol man will probably tear up due to the dust....
    On my honor,
    I will never betray my badge,

    I will always have
    the courage to hold myself
    and others accountable for our actions.
    I will always uphold the constitution,
    my community, and the agency I serve.

    Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Watching 'Saving Private Ryan' brought home the reality of the sacrifice those men gave to rid the world of the evil that was taking over the earth!
