I think it is so unfortunate that our President can't take even a few minutes out of his busy day attending four more fundraisers to at least say a simple thank you to those heroic individuals who launched the Allied invasion on the shores of Normandy in the successful effort to free a continent from fascism.
Maybe they saved the world as we know it but thankfully we will never know what would have happened to our civilization had their efforts failed.
Well since our President has been too busy to even acknowledge the anniversary of D-Day for three consecutive years now I offer a repeat of my blog dated June 6, 2011. If nothing else it shows how much of a distinction one can draw between Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama.
If you have never watched the videos of President Reagan in Normandy on the 40th anniversary, please do so now by taking the links I included as one way of saying thank you to those who preserved our freedom by risking everything, a price that was paid by so many as the thought of the rows of white markers in Normandy should remind us every day.
God bless all of our D-Day heroes and make us worthy of their sacrifice!
