D-Day, June 6, 1944, True Honor


While Hitler slept, his people afraid to wake him, and Rommel away in Germany, the allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy this day, 77 years ago. With courage, preparation, the strength of will, surprise, deception, teamwork and so much more, freedom and liberty prevailed! They gave their all for the freedom of the Western world.

The Western Allies of World War II launched the largest amphibious invasion in history when they assaulted Normandy, located on the northern coast of France, on 6 June 1944. The invaders were able to establish a beachhead as part of Operation Overlord after a successful “D-Day,” the first day of the invasion.

These men were the most gallant of men and many lost their lives but even as many fell, others moved forward, never hesitating, as they took back the beaches of Normandy.

God bless them all. Every school should have poster sized photos of those young men, sitting in those landing craft, waiting the call to face a hail of bullets on Omaha Beach. Let today’s kids take a look at the youthful faces of those heroic servicemen. Include in the display the average age of those who made that assault.
Maybe it will offer some perspective.

The troops exiting the landing craft came up on the desktop rotation about 0030 (1230AM) June 6 and I gave a fist pump.
Internet snarkmemes show the scene with captions like…come on boys, we must make the world safe for trannies.
Another one shows the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima with a rainbow flag and a person had this as a tattoo on their left shoulder and it wasn’t a photochop.
Not a peep about June 6 from enemedia maggots or CCP Joe tells you all that you need to know.
Nothing compared to the coverage of a race infused riot from 100 years ago and why is that something to be “celebrated” or remembered?
