D-Day Anniversary 2015

Today is the 71th Anniversary of D-Day. It is about the sacrifices made on the beaches of Normandy by our military and those of our Allies.  I remember Charles M Schulz’s honor of D-Day in his Peanuts strip. And of course, Ronald Regan speech in 1984 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this event comes to my mind of what these fine men did on this day.

D-Day Anniversary

Today is a important day in history.  It is about the sacrifices made on the beaches of Normandy by our military and those of our Allies.

Ronald Regan speech in 1984 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this event comes to my mind of what these fine men did on this day.  Rush mentions his recent visit to this site here.

It is important to remember it because today many of the remaining survivors of this event are passing away.  Stories here and here.

A special thanks to those who served our country during that time.  Michelle Malkin’s tribute.
