Days No One Should Forget

The first time I saw Saving Private Ryan, I sat with my mouth open at the brutality and devastation of war.  Then, when you realize that this was Hollywood's very accurate depiction of what that day on the beaches of Normandy, France were like, and you just can't fathom the horror.

War is hell, and D-Day was brutal.

Those men charged that beach 70 years ago so that we continue our way of life today.  It was the ultimate example of paying it forward.  For all these reasons, I humbly thank each and every veteran that fought that day, and I honor the memory of those that never came home.
