Again, we remember


While those few that remain are still young in their memories, and many who were were once young will forever remain so, those of us who came after once again remember and commemorate the sacrifices made on this day in 1944 when the Allied Armies invaded Festung Europa. Less than one year later, Adolph Hitler lay dead in the burning remains of Berlin and for one glorious second, Europe was free. Men like these paid the butcher's bill for that, and they deserve nothing less than our everlasting gratitude and remembrance.
