Wednesday’s Hero

Invasion Of Normandy
Invasion Of Normandy

Friday marks the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy, or D-Day. In the early hours of June 6, 1944, 156.000 troops from 12 nations including America, United Kingdom and Canada set out with the largest seaborne invasion force in history. The invasion marked the end of Germany's occupation of Europe and turned the course of the war. When the fight was over, there were 12,000 Allied casualties and 4,414 dead. We remember these brave men on Friday, as well as today, for the sacrifices they made in the name of freedom. With each passing year we lose more and more of these veterans until one day they'll be gone. They didn't set out to make history or garner glory, but that's precisely what they did. So cherish and honor them while we still have them.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.

  1. I wish more people took the time to honor these heroes every week like this. To this day, men and woman are killing protecting our freedoms, and they are heroes! I just saw on the news the other day a local soldier was killed by friendly fire. They put themselves in harms way to protect our way of life.
