PostSubject: June 6th - D-Day Anniversary   Fri Jun 06, 2008 1:53 pm

64 years ago, approx 150,000 young men landed on on the enemies doorstep, against a secured and fortified enemy, and laid their lives on the line to get a foothold in an evil empires backyard. They stepped onto the various beaches of Normandy, and into history. Without them, and the ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice, the war may have not been won. Remember them today, and keep them in your hearts always.






In the end, over 10,000 allied troops would give their lives before the end of July.


Normandy American Cemetary and Memorial

This is a poem written by 1st Lt. Aaron Seesan, who died in combat on May 22, 2005, in Iraq. He had written this as a senior in high school, about 6 years before his death.

EULOGY OF THE COMMON SOLDIER

All mortal beings, which God brought forth, die the same
Man is not exempt
All will inevitably end as the dust from whence we came
It matters not of age
Do not mourn me if I should fall in a foreign land
Think this of my passing
In a far-off field a finer soil mixed with the foreign sand
A dust that is American
A dust that laughed, cried, and loved as an American
On this plot there shall be
A little piece of America, a patch for the free man
Which no oppressor can take
From this soil grows grass shimmering a little greener
Brilliant emerald ramparts
A Breeze whisping White Poppies with scent a little sweeter
Flowers towards heaven
Mourn not my terrible death but celebrate my cause in life
Viewed noble or not
I would have sacrificed and gave all that I had to give
Not to make man good
But only to let the good man live.

ó Aaron Seesan


Please take a moment out of your life to think of the men and women who have given their lives to keep you free. Keep their noble cause in your hearts and minds, and remember that good men can triumph over evil.

LOL

Thanks, FYI, I always post June 6th as my online B-Day as a tribute to D-Day.

Not many people in this day and age remember the day...

Thanks booligan

I greatly respect what the military does. I may not support the war, but I respect what they are doing. I believe we should not fight any war, but the world is too evil and most of the time, war is man's only option.

I really dislike how people hate on the war and the soldiers. Makes me sick.

Hating on the soldiers is what gets me, they are told what to do, and for the most part they have only two options.

1- Follow the order
2- Go to military prison for many years

I choose 1 under 95% on situations
