    Really is a shame we can’t seem to remember our troops except on Federal holidays or when a veteran reminds us of what sacrifice’s they made… we should all wake up each morning, realize that we have the freedoms we have and, if not out loud at least silently, thank our men and women who have served or are serving. THEY wrote the check for OUR freedoms and THEY paid for it… some in full.

    We really are spoiled…..

    amy– That’s one of the spots I’d like to visit next time I’m in the area. Although the classic movie “The Longest Day” is entertaining, it’s not very accurate as to what really went down.

    Tattoo Jim– The invasion of Normandy was one of the best-kept secrets of WWII. One of the great ironies was that most of Germany’s military commanders were in Berlin at the time, running through a “what if” scenario – an Allied invasion of Normandy.

    Sadly, our Village has just lost its 96-year old D-Day veteran

    —- still alert and kindly to the end

    Herr Eagle– Nice to hear from you. As for the honorable elders, their numbers are sadly dwindling. I can only hope that their stories will neither be forgotten, nor rewritten.
