Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
I would like to thank anyone and everyone that was in that horrendous battle.I pray to God that we never have to experience something like that again. I also ask God to touch with his healing hand, anyone still feeling the grief and pain of that awful day. I ask him to heal them of their pain and remind everyone,that our loved ones lost on that day are with you happy and safe. Men should never have to kill or be killed in those ways.Please understand that we deserve better and are better. It's our job as loving individuals, to never resort to such methods. May God bless us all and heal our imperfections every day.I pray you give me better understanding so that I may be understood better. In your sons loving name I ask these things.

We must not forget or we are doomed to repeat.

We are losing our WWII vets quickly. Not many left.
 Quoting: FatalW1shes


Thanks for the karma pin. I really think it's important for us to remember those who died for us and our freedoms...it is so easy to go on with our lives and forget.

Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
My uncle Robert participated in the D-Day invasion. He was a giant of a man, six feet seven inches tall. He was the only member of his landing craft to survive the landing.

He lost his mind in the fighting. In and out of army hospitals for the rest of his life. When he'd get "better" he'd be released and would spend time at our house. Very gentle man when he was "better".

I recall one day in 1961 when I came home from school, asked mom "Where's Uncle Robert" and she told me how around noon he'd become convinced that the Germans had taken the town (we lived in Vermont....) and went running off into the forest. My dad, my aunt, and the chief of police went into the woods to find him, did, and convinced him that the Germans had retreated. Back to the army hospital for Uncle Robert.

Eventually, he just stayed in the army hospital, VA hospitals. In the 1970's he was living in one in Maine and sent my mother a letter. He said that he'd been sitting in a rocking-chair watching the sunset, and Jesus had come up and put a hand on his shoulder. He wrote that that was the first time since the war that he'd felt at peace. He died shortly thereafter.

I think of Uncle Robert often, and especially on June 6.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1284302


This is both a sad and very touching story...

I wish your uncle was around now so we could thank him for his service...it's important to remember that there were many like him.

sorry americans but D-Day is not the crucial turn of WWII, its Stalingrad. Im not trying to underestimate your sacrifice but D-day impact on WWII is overvalued. Ill sure give you a round of applause but a much bigger one to the Soviet people.

You two are right-wing shilltards. Yeah, let corporations run education, the quality will be extremely impressive then, just like a 99c cheeseburger!

Being against the workers in a company is just fucking stupid. You are voting against yourself because you actually believe you are so elite you are above the establishment and are voting on behalf of your non-existent future billionaire status.

I do -- big time -- and I know that the majority of World War II was fought in Russia. Keep in mind too, however, that a lot of Russia's war effort was kept going by money and supplies from the United States.

This is an important anniversary and without the sacrifices made that day, we wouldn't be able to be here today and discuss what we do daily.

Let's give a round of applause to those who sacrificed for us all 68 years ago today.

if hitler wanted, he could have snuffed that out, no bother.

if hitler wanted, he'd have released the panzers on them once they landed, but he waited far too long

if hitler wanted, he'd have over run the UK, and the 'few' would have been mere mozzies buzzing around the monster's head.

ww2 was a giant mindfuck, just like ww3 will be

Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
Thank you OP, but I never forget and never forget to thank those who serve as does my son. At our Memorial Day parade I commented from the sidewalk to a sargeant who marched by that he should get himself a real jeep, referring to the Willys in front of him and he came over and shook my hand and we exchanged thanks. There are few of us who honor those who serve, but quality, not quantity is what counts in this game.

Oh, by the way, I had two uncles in that conflict, both are gone now, but both were GREAT men and I miss them very much! God Bless.

SAINTE-MARIE-DU-MONT, France — With World War II-era military planes darting overhead and Normandy's Utah Beach visible in the distance, a bronze statue emerged from beneath a camouflage parachute, in tribute to a man whose quiet leadership was chronicled in the book and television series "Band of Brothers."
