60 Years Ago

Was D-Day. Allied troops crossed the channel and took on a great force that was cemented into France. They fought bravley, on both sides and I would like to write how much I appreciate their efforts and how well they fought. If nothing had been done about the tyranny of Hitler, the world would be a very different place today. Both Axis or Allied, soldiers fought long and hard in the worst conditions, while being away from home foor as long as 4 years in some cases. As I am in a Armed Cadet Force, I can appriciate their struggles that much more. I have been in situations, maybe not life or death, that seemed real enough at the time and I can't imagine the pain and hell they went through.
So, I can't thank the veterans and the men and women which didn't come home enough.



Thank You

Yes this is true. I give my respects to all of the soldiers and everyone who helped out during the war(s).

Re: 60 Years Ago

My grandfather was a part of the Normandy invasion. He has told me the worst stories of how he's seen his best friends' heads blown off and people stepping on mines, losing limbs, and their will to live. I am very grateful for those brave enough to fight for our freedom and the freedom of other countries.

yeah. those guys are so brave and noble. i watched a couple of episodes of 'Band Of Brothers' last night, and those little interviews with the veterans before each episode really move me.
