It's hard to comprehend, in this age of the pajama-boy, of the raw and unbridled courage that was demonstrated on that morning by men as young as 18. Living in the age of 30 year old boys, this level of valor can be tough to get one's head around. It's also hard to imagine an American president who could boldly lead a Republic into prayer without the fear of some atheist with their knicker's in a wad being offended. For those unfamiliar, that prayer is captured on the video below.
The youngest of those men who landed on the Normandy beaches are quickly approaching their 90th birthday's. They're deserving of our thanks and our gratitude. To those brave American's, Canadian's, Brit's and free French warriors, I say thank you and may our LORD bless and keep you all the day's of your lives.
