Can you imagine how they felt?
June 5th, the night before D-Day.
May we remember that on this night in history, June 5th, 1944, the brave soldiers preparing for the assault that would take place the following morning.
The soldiers, (many of whom) knew that they would not live to see June 7th.
For many, this was their last night here on earth.
I thank them with all of my heart for what they have sacrificed.

"You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world."
—Eisenhower, Letter to Allied Force

"There is one great thing that you men will all be able to say after this war is over and you are home once again. You may be thankful that twenty years from now when you are sitting by the fireplace with your grandson on your knee and he asks you what you did in the great World War II, you WON'T have to cough, shift him to the other knee and say, Well, your Granddaddy shoveled shit in Louisiana. No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Third Army and a Son-of-a-Goddamned-Bitch named Georgie Patton!" -General George S. Patton, Jr

"5th Rangers!"
“Well, goddamn it then, Rangers, lead the way!” - Maj. Gen. Norman Cota. (:
