...one of the largest invasion forces ever landed on Normandy beach. May those that gave all rest in peace.

A former neighbor of mine was featured in the local paper one year and shared his experiences at Normandy. I concur that we need to remember those who served that mission...

I've read and read about Normandy, and I still can't get my mind around what those guys went through. It was truly a mission of, "Well, they can't kill us all, but we know they'll kill a lot of us." The odds of survival for someone from the first boats was really low. They were fish in a barrel, in a lot of cases. And a lot of these guys - most of them - were there fighting for an ideal. They chose to serve because of that ideal. True heroes, in every sense of the word.
