My father-in-law fought in World War II, and was there for the invasion of Normandy. Specifically he was on Omaha Beach and lived to tell about it. Later he fought in the Korean War.
My Dad was in the military too but due to his age he was in between the wars. They are both long since passed away.
It’s difficult to know sometimes what to write on days like today. It’s a solemn day, remembering all those who gave their lives fighting…..for our democracy.
For me personally, I thank God for them. I’m also grateful to come from a long line of fighting Nazis, and right wing extremism.
Wishing you peace today. Let’s remember….. to remember.
