June 6, 1944......

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Legacy

I just wanted to take a moment to let those survivors of one of the greatest battles in the last century know how thankful I am for their courage.  There were other great battles fought in that war and in other wars, where courage held the day.  It is just that this day has always been Holy to me.  Like a lot of other people, I had an Uncle that fought across Omaha Beach some 44 years ago.  He was lucky, he came home, there were so many that didn't.  US Cemetery in Normandy, France

The horror that he described to me in unimaginable, yet I know that it happened, for I have seen the documentaries where soldiers from both side described it, not that I didn't believe my Uncle, it was just the surety of the other participants. 

   

So to my Uncle, to those that are still living and to those heroes that have passed on; once again a heartfelt thank you for your courage, honor and sacrifice!  That goes to every vetran of every war!  Thank you!!!

June 6, 1944 is truly a day that should be remembered by all!  WWII vets are surely our "Greatest Generation"

I have 2 Uncles that served in the Pacific Theater during WWII.  Both came home alive.  I have an Uncle I don't remember that was in the Battle of the Bulge.  He made it home, but died at a younger age.  I don't know what he died from, but my Mom said he was never the same after he returned from the war.  My Aunt was a widow as long as I can remember, and her son (my cousin) was their only child.  They paid a high price for that war as well.

Thanks for the reminder!

Amen!  There's a reason that's titled as The Greatest Generation.  Excellent post my friend!

"Thank You" is an understatement. It's amazing what these brave women and men go through. My Dad says very little to this day about his past war experiences. I am sure they are absoulely horrific. Thanks for this tribute to our men and women who serve and who have served in very difficult times.

Tony and Darcy, I was in Washington, D.C. in April for one reason and one reason only. I went to visit and to pay my respects to the veterans by visiting the war monuments.

 

The following photo was shot at the new  World War Two Monument. The words speak clearly  for themselves. God bless those that served and may we always remember the sacrifice of those that served and those that provided the ultimate sacrifice.
