D Day plus 63 years
June 6 is a sacred anniversary, the commemoration of one of the greatest invasions in human history, D-Day at Normandy. Brave Allied troops waded ashore amidst withering machine gun fire and artillery, dying by the thousands in order to secure the beachhead and lay the basis for the western front and the drive into Germany. It was incomparably bloody beyond anything we have encountered in Iraq.
Twelve Amy men earned the Medal of Honor on that day, 8 of them posthumously (see this link). To honor them all, we should read and learn as much as possible about their valor and sacrifice, even as WW2 veterans are dying in great numbers - and to never forget them.
