    My wife and I watched the two part special on the History Channel this weekend. It consisted of archival film and interviews with survivors of the invasion. Those veterans surviving are now in their late 80s and 90s and are vanishing. My next door neighbor was a navigator on a bomber in the Army Air Corps during the war. I had a client who was also a navigator, although the two never met. Their stories are/were a privilege to hear. We had two members of my church who were prisoners of war: one in a German camp and one in a Japanese camp (he survived the Bataan death march). USM has a wonderful living history program where some of these stories can be heard.

    So, next time you see a veteran, of any war, thank him or her. And then thank God.

      In an age when the term “hero” has been cheapened almost to meaninglessness, these brave men embody the truest meaning of the word.

    Thank you WW 2 vets. Our generation is not made of the same stuff.

    I visited the Normandy American Cemetery at Colleville sur Mer on a sunny afternoon in July of 2000. Words cannot describe the experience of walking among thousands of crosses and occasional Stars of David while overlooking the beach. The bronze statue at the memorial honors “The American Youth Rising From the Sea”, and the tile mosaic in the ceiling of the chapel is a poignant tribute to those who fell. I was stunned to hear our National Anthem at 5 p.m., and Taps was played at 6 p.m. as the cemetery was closing, Those who made the sacrifice deserve to be remembered.
