Ann McFeatters, a newspaper columnist, has written an article which appeared in our local Sunday newspaper. She states, "But Normandy still stands as a synonym for courage, heroism and the best humans have to offer - making the supreme sacrifice to help others."
On the 50th anniversary, Bill Clinton was serving as president. This is a quote from what he had to say on that occasion: "Let us never forget, when they were young, these men saved the world."
While I do not come from a background of military service - with the exception of an uncle who served for a short time during World War II - and I've a nephew who is serving in the Air Force - I recognize the sacrifices made by those who serve our country in the military, and I'm grateful to them for their service.
This book has been on our shelves since it was first released.
|The subject - those who served in World War II.|
I look forward to watching the coverage on television today of the special events marking this special anniversary.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
