How can we ever forget  June 6, 1944


 
 
My tribute to those brave and valiant soldiers on that day


D'Day  the invasion of Normandy
June 6,  1944

There are certain days in history
we should never forget

One of those days is
D-Day - June 6 - 1944

It is a day that changed the history of the world
Our troops and our allies fought to free Europe from Hitler's tyranny

≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈

Gen. Dwight D Eisenhower was
The allied commander of the invasion

Today very little is said of this heroic day in the news media
 nor is it  taught in our schools as it should be

it is not on my calendar
I will not buy  from that company again

≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈

The Encyclopædia Britannica says and I quote

"On June 6, 1944, a date known ever since as D-Day,
a mighty armada crossed a narrow strip of sea from England to Normandy, France,
and cracked the Nazi grip on western Europe."
≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈
It tells the story of the Normandy Invasion
through the spoken recollections of veterans who fought it,

 the newsreels that brought the news home,
and the written words of historians who have dedicated years
to studying the great campaign.


≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈

It is important that we remember those hallowed days
To remember those brave soldiers who some gave their all for freedom

That is the great generation we should look up to
We should remember the values they represent

May God bless them and their service to the world
Long may freedom reign

2 Chronicles 7:14

If My people, which are called by My name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek My face,
 and turn from their wicked ways;
 then will I hear from heaven,
 and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.

King James Bible


GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR ALLIES
