D Day Landing - 65 Years

d day landings
Today in 1944, thousands of men from the 4 corners of the world landed on the beaches in Normandy. Politicians have tried to turn today into an Obama photo opportunity and political event. By doing so they disgrace the memory of all the men, that fought their way up those beaches, thousands of whom never went home to their families. Today's event should always be first and foremost for them.

I am grateful that I've never seen the side of war, that the veterans and the generation of D-Day did. As my Granddad's silence when I asked him about the war, always said more to me than words ever could.
