Today is D-Day. The day we remember our armed forces who bravely stormed the beach at Normandy in that epic battle of WWII in 1944. The scene is vividly depicted in the movie 'Saving Private Ryan' and still shakes me whenever I see it. I cannot imagine what these soldiers went through.

There are heroes in this world but none that have earned that title more than the men who fought that day and lived through that hell and we will never forget those who did not make it. We have so much to be grateful for every day that we draw breath and those WWII vets are at the top of the 'worthy of our gratitude' list. Thank you to all of those who fought and to the families left behind. There are many sons, daughters, grandchildren, brothers and sisters who lost so much that day. God bless the American soldier.
