Today, wherever you are, whatever you're doing, stop and take a moment to pay your respects to the boys who never made it off the beaches of Normandy.
They were Brits, Yanks, Kiwis, Frenchmen, Dutch, Greeks, Aussies, Belgians, Poles, Canadians, Czechs, and Norwegians, and they died for YOU.
Some of them were veterans, and far too many were green recruits. Some were men, but most were boys. They knew what was being asked of them. They knew they were headed into the mouth of hell, yet they did not flinch. They stormed those damn beaches with everything they had.
Don't cry for them, those saviors of humanity. Just remember them. Raise your glass to those who never made it back, have a moment of silence, it doesn't matter, it's up to you. Just remember them, and never forget.
