Good Thursday everyone. The week is almost over as we head for TGIF and of course The Saturday Special I wanted to take a minute that I meant to take yesterday in noting a part of our history in this country. D-Day, the invasion of Normandy, France by the Allied forces during W.W.II. I know this blog site isn’t necessarily for talking about war history and that isn’t my intent here. This is just intended to be a short post to note and thank all those who served and gave of themselves so we would have the ability to sit at our computer screens and snark at will.
You can read a synopsis about the invasion HERE. There are very few of these people left who were there. If you ever have the privilege of meeting one of them, which I never have, thank them. If they are willing to speak about it, listen to what they have to say about overcoming what had to be, insurmountable odds. Even with the shear numbers they had to accomplish this task, they were still fighting an uphill battle against a very determined enemy who was well fortified. Let’s also not forget, the airborne troops who were not on the boats but were scattered all over the countryside on that same day and for days to come.
Just thought I’d mention it.
