70 years ago today the greatest generation landed on the beaches of Normandy taking tremendous casualties and turning the tide in WWII. The amazing sacrifices they made to preserve freedom and end the atrocities of the Germans deserve to be remembered and celebrated.
Thank God for men that were willing to risk it all so save the lives of men and women they would never know. Many of them made the ultimate sacrifice leaving behind parents, wives, girlfriends and children. Today we should pause to remember them and honor them.
Most of us are not old enough to remember these events. Some may not be familiar with any of the facts of this period in history. I encourage you to take some time today to do some reading, look at some pictures and realized the courage and bravery of these men and what it means to us today.
