Unique­la­homa hon­ors all those who fought for free­dom on D‑Day this 74th Anniversary.

C.L. Har­mon

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.

    we were there last week. I had to think a lot about what hap­pened there. When you hear Nor­mandy you auto­mat­i­cal­ly think about it.
