"This embattled shore, portal of freedom, is forever hallowed by the ideals, the valor and the sacrifices of our fellow countrymen."

I had two family members who served on that day. They came home -- never the same -- and died premature deaths.

May God hold in the palm of His hand the brave ones of that day 65 years ago!

My uncle served in the US Army during WW II ... I don't know if he made the D-Day landing or not.

Thank you for posting this.

Semper Fidelis,

It wasn't in good taste to blog on this so I waited, but I love what it says on the cross in your image (plenty of Stars of David at Normandy, too, by the way)...
So, I'll tell you that the French gave a very beautiful plot of land to the Germans after WWII and, there, the sign says something very close to "And Here lie the German soldiers many of whom did not pick the cause or the fight".
I feel that needs to be said...but not ON D Day. No.

Dang, Z! I didn't know the French did that. The French are such a grateful people, no? NO!

Wordsmith, it breaks my heart that we have so many ingrates in our own country. Those a two great videos. Thank you.
