Remember D-Day

Seventy-two years ago, thousands of soldiers from the U.S., the United Kingdom, Canada and other allied nations stormed ashore on the beaches of Normandy, France. Thousands of them died gaining a foothold on the beaches in a campaign that ultimately drove Nazi Germany from power in Europe and opened a new era of freedom. They made the sacrifice because they had to, but you never heard that generation complain. They believed they were fighting for freedom, and they were. I wonder what they would think about the current political situation, with a Socialist, a future felon and a thin-skinned narcissistic reality TV star vying to become the so-called leader of the free world. Never mind the complete turd those three hope to replace. I hope they didn't die for nothing.
