    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

    Yes, I'm somewhat surprised this day hasn't received both more mention here and more mention on TV. I was only a year old back then, certainly knew nothing of the events until I was much older, but that was the day the world was saved.

    Perhaps the most important day in all of the 20th century.

    Of course, the nominal media has ignored the Anniversary.

    Yep, they did that and it really got me PO'd. 30-40 years ago one could find several channels showing the movie The Longest Day on D-Day.

    On another site i started a thread about D-Day and got no responses. Problem is that the arm chair "patriots" ignore the accomplishments of the real patriots who kept this country free.

    Got that right ...

    "This We'll Defend" ... US Army

    "Honor, Courage, Commitment"
    "Non Sibi Sed Patriae!"(Not for self, but country) ... US Navy

    "Semper Fidelis"(Always Faithful)" ... US Marines

    "Integrity First"
    "Service Before Self "
    "Excellence in All We Do" ... US Air Force

    "Semper Paratus"(Always Ready)" ... US Coast Guard



    OOH RAH ... It's a patriot thing ...
    I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
