My dad told me when the war started in '39, the men all joined up to feed their families, most of them didn't come back. Nothing to do with King and country, people were hungry, the depression was that bad.

The movie "The Longest Day" almost didn't even mention this.

To FDR and the so called "greatest generation", their like will probably never come this way again

This day always makes me remember the 116th Infantry, the Bedford Boys, and the 111th Field Artillery. My dad lost a good friend that day.

I salute my father and those of his time who assumed this burden for humanity. May we not squander what they paid for.
The development of atomic power, though it could confer unimaginable blessings on mankind, is something that is dreaded by the owners of coal mines and oil wells. (Hazlitt)
What I want to do is to look up C. . . . I call him the Forgotten Man. (Sumner)

President Trump marked the D-Day anniversary by reading an excerpt from a prayer President Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered to the nation by radio on the evening of June 6, 1944, in which he spoke to the country for the first time about the Normandy operation.
