• Deserving of our gratitude and respect, those who gave their lives on D-Day did so to save the world from the tyranny and destruction that would have surly changed things for the worst forever.

    Being thankful for their sacrifices from here to eternity will never be enough. But not being thankful is easily Blasphemous. Thanks GI. Not all of you came home but all of you came into our hearts.

  • Good Point Alton! My great uncle stormed Normandy and survived. He is no longer with us now, but he was a true hero in my eyes.

  • While in the "reading room", I noticed another mention of D-Day in the advocate.

    The Obit of Richard R. Longoria of Bay City.

  • Alton, I was thinking the same. Even though it's not the 60th or 70th or some even number of anniversary, a public commemoration is an honorable thing. Thanks for point this out.

  • And one of the bravest days as well. So many soldiers, throwing themselves straight into enemy fire.
