Today we remember the amazing amount of courage that the Greatest Generation showed when they invaded Normandy on June 6th, 1944. Thousands died within a matter of hours, but their sacrifice was worth it as D-Day ended up being the turning point in World War II.
This type of attack would never be possible today, as even a single military death is reason enough for many in this country to prove the cause is not worth fighting for. But my grandparents generation new different, and they were willing to do whatever it took to win the war. I know that mentality seems alien in 2006, but that was the way it was. Mankind will always be in debt to those brave men who faught and died that day, as the world would be a very different place today if they had failed.
God Bless all WWII vets.
