    Today, Saturday June 6th 2020 marks the 76th anniversary of D-Day. During these troubling times we should take a moment to remember those who fought and died on D-Day.
    THANK YOU!!

    Thank you for reminding me. Freedom isn't free... it costs blood both in 1776 as it did in D-Day. In the Christian sense, on the Cross too.

    Indeed. As Spike Milligan once said: "Look, I died in the war for people like you."

    We did a tour of Sword, Juno, Gold and the start of Omaha beaches about 10-years ago - highly recommended.
