Remembering Their Courage


The courage and the success in defeating the Nazis gave us a very different world today, 79 years later. We ours and our allies' troops an eternal debt of gratitude.

My father was at bloody Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944 in the first wave. He survived that battle an WW II without being wounded or even sick with the flu despite over 200 days on the front lines!

Such was not the case with 50% of the troops that landed with him on D-Day at bloody Omaha.

Dad would never talk about the war except about the good times, like when his platoon "liberated" a French wine cellar and got roaring drunk, so what little I know is what my mother told me always warning, "Ronnie, never, NEVER ask your dad about D-Day."

After seeing "Saving Private Ryan" and the scenes of the massacre at Omaha Beach I can see the reason.

TAPS for the greatest generation!
