Remembering D Day

On June 6th, 1944 the Allies invaded France along a 50-mile stretch of beach in Normandy. 160,000 troops landed that day. More than 195,000 Allied naval and merchant navy personnel in over 5,000 ships were involved.
Operation Neptune began with a parachute assault by 24,000 American, British, Canadian, and Free French behind enemy lines. The Allies suffered an estimated 10,000 casualties that day … including 2,500 dead. But by the end of the day the Allies had a beach head and a toe hold on the European continent. That began the drive through France and into Germany … resulting ultimately in victory.
World War Two veterans are rapidly passing from our midst, but their service, courage, and sacrifice is not forgotten and will never be. Every June 6th I am reminded of the greatness of my parents’ generation. As long as I have a voice on the radio, I’ll keep reminding you.
Our thought for today is from William Shakespeare:
“Be not afraid of greatness: some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
