Remember

“It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

    My father would never talk about D-day, just found out recently he was a Beach Master through the whole thing.

    Wow...we owe so much to him and the hundreds of thousands of other brave men who took to the Normandy beaches that day....and all the other beaches where Americans had to face off against well entrenched enemies....

    A day to remember those who are serving and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

    In all the pre-landing bombing, rockets and guns of the big ships, not one **** was killed. Those men landed with 100% of Rommel's beach defenses undamaged.

    9:00 EST. Mad respect for those who defend us and their families. Thanks to all the BOTL in uniform.
