Ray - you are a good man! thanks for drawing this date, none more important, perhaps, in history, to our attention. I saw not one mention of D-Day in my morning propaganda rag, the San Francisco Chronicle. Of course, it is an unofficial opinion paper for the People’s Republic of Kalifornia. Heck, I don’t even have a Canary so I could use it for all its really good for.
Today is the anniversary of what should be a day of great pride (and great sorrow for all those incredibe then-young men who died or were wounded there) for Americans and their participating allies of England, Canada, Free-France in exile, and any others that participated. They are loved and their memories cherished by many of us, and that includes those still among us today, not just the men who were at D-Day, but for all those that sacrificed so much in a horrible war.
It is a day that also brings to mind, though for most it is ever present, the deeds of fine young men and women serving in harms way right now. Bless them, as well as their fathers and grand fathers who served and sacrificed so long ago.
