It is hard to imagine the horror of what 164,000 young men experienced as they stormed the beaches of Normandy, but it is no doubt the American men sacrificed themeselves for their belief in our nation and our freedom. Of the 16 million soldiers that served in WWII, only 1.7 million are alive today. By this time next year, it will likely be far fewer. Let us all take an opportunity to celebrate our Greatest Generation through remembrance on this day. What a wonderful opportunity we all have to call a Grandparent, Church member or friend in the community and thank them for what they sacrificed for us and our children 67 years ago today.
