My father was US Navy in the Pacific during WW2, and it is imperative that those who fought in the Pacific never be forgotten. D-Day was monumentally important to the liberation of Europe, but it the Pacific, Tarawa, Iwo Jima, Bougainville, Tarawa and Okinawa were D-Days that never seemed to end.

An American soldier fighting in the Pacific remarked,"You can surround a 100,000 Germans and they will surrender, but surround one Japanese, and he will keep fighting."

I am sure it will be replayed and available through various sources.

You will really enjoy it for its focus was on how brave and gallant the men who served this country acted for the benefit of the world.

The message from both leaders wasn't just about how the Allies came together as a fighting force against the *****.

The words spoken captured the moment the world "hung in the balance" as to whether or not the largest armada in history

would be successful in securing the beach and establishing a stronghold.

It became very clear based on the results of our assault on the ***** that if D Day had not gone as planned we would have

had a very serious setback in defeating the evil that we faced as a world.

I watched a few minutes of CNN with Acosta and the studio folks on duty. Hmmm... I was surprised... they were not hacking away at out president as they normally do.

They actually said a few words that captured the moment and portrayed our president in a positive light... hmmm... I still can't believe it!

As a Canadian whose FIL fought in Europe (First Special Service Force) I was so proud to watch President Trump this morning.

God Bless everyone of those brave men and women who fought and worked so hard to keep them fighting. So Brave. So selfless.

I believe the Canadians took disproportionate heavy losses on that invasion. Much reason to be proud.

The oppression, perversion, and misery liberals wish for America is exactly what they died to erase.

I'm proud, thankful, and saddened for their sacrifice of so many lives. Yet, I am also angered by the fact that if we let liberals continue, it will have been a complete and total waste. Take some time and watch as many of the documentaries about this time that are on almost every channel today. You will notice some chilling similarities to our evil domestic enemy liberals of today. It should be eye opening for those who do not recognize the danger we face from the "liberals" of today.
no doubt we need a dday on the f'ing liberals they are worse than krauts anyday.

I'm guessing Michelle (all this over a flag) Obama and those who think like her, will find something to criticize Trump over.

BTW - While it was a nice speech, immortal?

Because people, in general, are easily indoctrinated when they are young and developing. And this is what has happened when the school system and universities push what is now totally different ideas than what was prevalent in the 40's thru the early 60's.
Socialism and feelings based on beliefs instead of fact have become mainstream.
