Today is a day to remember the great sacrifice made by our boys in the greatest generation when they invaded the beaches of Normandy by air, by land, and by sea. Here is one of our great Presidents giving one of the best D-Day speeches ever. Ronald Reagan, June 6th, 1984:[youtube]http://youtu.be/eEIqdcHbc8I[/youtube]
And this video is a must see:[youtube]http://youtu.be/kjct0HD2Lo8[/youtube]
Take a bit out of your day today to watch the two videos above and honor our heroes. While you’re at it read this excellent post written by Mata two years ago and then switch over to Time who published today some previously undiscovered color photographs of the invasion and its aftermath.
