Today is the 64th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Europe, the opening of the Second Front in World War II.
Since we all enjoy and admire our fictional heroes so much, I thought it would be appropriate to honor our real-life heroes. Many of the men who hit those beaches in the dawn of June 6, 1944, were still in their teens or had parents, wives and children back home. They sacrificed so much (some made the ultimate sacrifice) against true evil.
All the men and women serving (like veteran JFK pictured in my icon) risked a great deal, in that war and every war. Often it's the rich and powerful who orate and get us into wars while the little guy and his loved ones pay the price.
Heroism should always be remembered.
