D-Day Plus 75 Years

I for one would like to salute and honor those who fought and died during the invasion of Normandy France.
So often we forget those who died on foreign battlefields. I couldn't bear the thought of forgetting those brave soldiers who landed among the worst fighting ever. A 38% casualty rate within the first 48 hours of fighting trying to survive and bring freedom to those in Europe against Nazi Germany.

Please do not never forget these brave men and women who fought in WWII

Well said. For just one minute try thinking what would be going through your mind if you were one of the men exiting a landing craft while seeing fellow soldiers falling in the water and on the beach in front of you. God bless their souls.

We could be living in a world with no blacks.... no Jews.... no Poles... nobody that isn't blonde haired, blue eyed, 'pure' and all speaking Deutsch.... if not for the greatest generation. Yes, thank you! It's hard to look at the insanity today and think it was all worth it. But this insanity shall pass.... The human spirit to instill our will is nearly as strong as the one to live free. Nearly, but not quite.

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... create welfare laws to service illegals in the Home Depot parking lot... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?
