Wouldn’t it be a remarkable event if 5,000 ships came to the rescue of people who were being oppressed?
What if those ships were carrying 150,000 troops who were willing to die to ensure that those people could be free and safe? Now imagine 10,000 aircraft flying above those ships with men willing to sacrifice everything for what is right. It is an awesome vision and on June 6, 1944 it became a reality.
The Normandy invasion into Nazi occupied France was the largest armada ever assembled. It was the action of nations in their finest moments. There is no vision greater than that of a free society which defends the right that all should be equally
free. 
This Veterans Day take a moment to remember the 9,000 servicemen killed or wounded on the beaches of Normandy whose sacrifice rests in the hope of keeping the dream of global freedom alive.

Unique Quote

Each year as the dawn of winter sets in, there is an eerie dreariness that surrounds the world. It’s as though summer is at war with autumn and losing. And as nature withers before us, it seems to steal a bit of the light we see in our lives. But what we are not seeing is the design, the plan to bring about a future spring season even though it happens time and time again. This is what happens in life. So never allow your current dark season keep you from the warm bright future you know awaits you. - C.L. Harmon
