Don't forget what day it is.

A lot of guys went to the beach 64 years ago today.

The beaches were in Normandy.

US casualties were 1465 dead, 3184 wounded, 1928 missing and 26 captured.

A little guy who played a wimp on the screen was there with a rifle in his hand(Charles Durning).A big guy who played a hero on the screen was in California making movies(Marion Morrison aka John Wayne).I won't watch a movie with the "Duck" in it.

John Wayne was 34 when the war started. While he could have served, he was hardly in the prime of life for active duty.

I wont start a flame about Mr. Marion Morrison when this thread should acknowledge the GREAT effort and sacrifice our boys made on the beached of Normandy.

God bless all those brave men. I thank them for their service.

Ditto to all the above.

All my uncles and my father served in that war. Don't ever forget to thank a soldier ever.

Thank you.
