It's the 69th anniversary of D-Day.


Recommended Posts

My Grandfather fought in the European war, but he came ashore with Pattons third army. He used to tell me how he wished he'd been there for the D-day landings. Judging from the carnage of the D-day invasion I'm glad that he wasn't there.

 

BUT FOR ALL OF THE MEN WHO WERE THERE, THANK YOU FROM A GRATEFUL NATION!!!!!!! GOD BLESS YOU.

Lots of good men died in WWII.

few thousand sailors and army on Dec. 7 alone.

The ones who came home got the GI Bill and paid back more

than they received due to the increased income from getting

well educated and better jobs and better pay and so paying

higher taxes that paid back their GI Bill amounts.

 

Korean War: Why weren't the bridges from China blown up

or massive bombing of chicom done to protect our guys?

 

Vietnam War: The proof of IKE's warning that the cia, oil,

military contractors and air farce were taking over the government

while killing 58,000 of our soldiers and stealing hundreds of billions

of our tax dollars, and delivering opium for heroin to drug dealers,

here.

 

bush and republicans' fraudulent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan:

Ditto the Vietnam War.

 

Republicans pushing to invade syria and iran.

Ditto their fraudulent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

An old girlfriend's grandfather died recently. His funeral was held at a military cemetery where I learned that he had earned a Silver Star on the Beaches of Normandy. I had no idea, and had known him all my life. I asked her the story and she said he had only talked about it once during her entire life...

 

He was a medic and crossed the beach 25 times to drag wounded guys to cover and treat them.

His wife told me that he was embarrassed by the Star and only wore it when necessary. He said he was just doing his job, like every other guy on that beach.
