June 6th, 1944. These men had balls of steel. 70th anniversary.

War is hell. I don't like war. Sometimes war is necessary. And Hitler was one son of a bitch who had to be stopped. All politics aside. The 70th anniversary of this is in a couple of weeks. Let's have a good memorial of these great heroes who gave their lives, so that we could have our lives that we have now.



Balls of Steel.

June 6th, 1944. 70 years ago.

Happy D Day!

God Bless all the Vets of D Day. Just citizen soldiers. Not born killers, just regular guys asked to do a dirty job.

There aren't many left anymore. I'm grateful to have met some of them in 2004 when I went to the 60th Anniversary commemoration in France. You don't get over seeing the Cemeterie Americain. Saw the German cemetery as well.

Too much death.

Thank you to all our Vets for keeping the world safe for democracy and defeating the evil Axis powers. That was a just war.

I wonder how many Americans don't know that there were three other beach landings that day, not just Omaha and Utah.

The other factor in WWII that is getting overlooked in this thread is that NOT ONLY were US troops committed to the war in Europe against the Nazi's AND the Italian Fascists, but troops and naval resources were also committed to fighting in the Pacific against a very dedicated Japanese military. The US successfully waged a war in multiple theaters of operation simultaneously! (and often with inferior equipment -- the M4 Sherman tank was inferior to the Panzer's the German's had during the Battle of the Bulge).

Partial quote from Ronal Reagan's sppeech 30 years ago on the men of the 2nd Ranger Battalion:

"We stand on a lonely, windswept point on the northern shore of France. The air is soft, but 40 years ago at this moment, the air was dense with smoke and the cries of men, and the air was filled with the crack of rifle fire and the roar of cannon. At dawn, on the morning of the 6th of June, 1944, 225 Rangers jumped off the British landing craft and ran to the bottom of these cliffs. Their mission was one of the most difficult and daring of the invasion: to climb these sheer and desolate cliffs and take out the enemy guns. The Allies had been told that some of the mightiest of these guns were here and they would be trained on the beaches to stop the Allied advance.

The Rangers looked up and saw the enemy soldiers the edge of the cliffs shooting down at them with machine guns and throwing grenades. And the American Rangers began to climb. They shot rope ladders over the face of these cliffs and began to climb over the face of these cliffs and began to pull themselves up. When one Ranger fell, another would take his place. When one rope was cut, a Ranger would grab another and begin his climb again. They climbed, shot back, and held their footing. Soon, one by one, the Rangers pulled themselves over the top, and in seizing the firm land at the top of these cliffs, they began to seize back the continent of Europe.

Two hundred and twenty-five came here. After 2 days of fighting, only 90 could still bear arms.

Behind me is a memorial that symbolizes the Ranger daggers that were thrust into the top of these cliffs. And before me are the men who put them there.

These are the boys of Pointe du Hoc. These are the men who took the cliffs. These are the champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war."

^^^ One of the best Memorial Speeches ever on a pedestal just slightly under The Gettysburg Address IMHO.

Peggy Noonan wrote it and Reagan delivered it masterfully with no teleprompter.
