Those men define the fine line between bravery and insanity.

True heros. And we all owe them a debt of gratitude. Every one of us that breathes.

If you're reading this, thank a teacher.

If you are anywhere close, you should visit the D-Day memorial in Bedford VA.

I will make it there one day. Thanks for posting it.



My Father hit the beach that day in a support capacity aboard LST327. He had just turned 20. I wish he was still alive so I could take him to France and the D-Day memorial.

It is an honor being his son.
