“In the invasion of France on D-Day, Nine Thousand Young Americans died on just one beach — Normandy. The total number of deaths of U.S. and Allied forces, as well as German defenders, in those first few days and weeks of the invasion is astounding. Yet today, tens of millions of uninformed, self-centered, spoiled, mentally lazy Americans –primarily those born after 1950, are ignorant of who initially created the great American Republic; what ideals and principles were established as our nation’s foundation; what price has been paid over the decades in the preservation of our country and our freedom; and in WWII who defeated the tyranny that was engulfing the entire world, and how many of our fellow Americans made the ultimate sacrifice. Not only do most of our two younger generations know little or nothing about this subject, but they really don’t care. The problem is not that young Americans are bad people. The cause, the neglect and the deficiency is that our colleges and universities have become Liberal-Left breeding rounds. It is time, indeed it is urgent, that every citizen is required to have a reasonable knowledge of this essential information if the United States is to endure.” — Dr. John Grady

Normandy Beach

A large percentage of our country doesn’t know of or care about Normandy. British artist Jamie, accompanied by numerous volunteers took to the beaches of Normandy with rakes and stencils in hand to etch into the sand 9,000 silhouettes representing fallen soldiers. Titled The Fallen 9000, the piece is meant as a stark visual reminder of those who died during the D-Day beach landings at Arromanches on June 6th, 1944 during WWII. The original team consisted of 60 volunteers, but as word spread nearly 500 additional local residents arrived to help with the temporary installation that lasted only a few hours before being washed away by the tide.

What is surprising is that nothing about this was seen here in the US. (Because our national media is essentially Leftist.) Someone from overseas had a friend that sent it with a note of gratitude for what the US started there.

Please share this with others who understand that freedom is not free, nor has it ever been. Send it on to everyone!

77th Anniversary of the Normandy Landing is commemorated today, June 6, 2021, to honor the sacrifices of a generation of allies that made up the invasion force, of over 150,000 military personnel from the United States, Britain, Canada, and Free France.

In the weeks following the invasion  Polish forces, and contingents from Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Greece, and the Netherland participated in the ground campaign; most also provided air and naval support alongside elements of the Royal Australian Air Force, the Royal New Zealand Air Force, and the Royal Norwegian Navy.  (From Wikipedia Invasion of Normandy)

The Western Allies of World War II launched the largest amphibious invasion in history when they assaulted the beaches at Normandy, located on the northern coast of France, on 6 June 1944. The invaders were able to establish a beachhead as part of Operation Overlord after a successful “D-Day,” the first day of the invasion.   (From Wikipedia Invasion of Normandy)

The Normandy invasion began with overnight parachute drops and glider landings, massive air attacks, and naval bombardments.   In the early morning, amphibious landings commenced on five beaches code named Sword, Juno, Gold, Omaha, and Utah, with troops from the United States landing on Omaha and Utah, Britain landing on Gold and Sword, and Canada landing on Juno. During the evening the remaining elements of the airborne divisions landed. Land forces involved on D-Day sailed from bases along the south coast of England, the most important of those being Portsmouth.   (From Wikipedia Invasion of Normandy)

Millions of Americans in the Greatest Generation came together at home to support the World War II effort, and American young men trained a home, then went into combat on foreign fields of fire, in order to secure freedom for millions of suppressed and interned people under Hitler’s oppressive National Socialist Government; 6,388 of American military personnel were lost on the beaches of Normandy, and 407,300 American military personnel were lost in WWII. 

We Honor the memory of the American military personnel who gave their all, were lost in the flower of their youth, and the free world is forever grateful for their heroic effort, that led to the vanquish Nazi tyranny.  God Bless their noble souls.
