D Day Remembrance

Today is the anniversary of our greatest generation stepping off the boats, under withering fire, and crawling their way to the French beaches.

I have been to the Omaha beach area and the Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville sur Mer, France. That those brave, and scared, men could get off those boats, see the raging fires on the hill sides, hear the bullets whistle over their heads, see their buddies die, and still come home to help build our country is inspiring.

We salute the veterans of Operation Overlord today.
