thanks for sharing. It's hard to fathom what those brave soldiers went through storming the beaches amid heavy artillery and machine gun fire.

It's hard to imagine sitting on that beach today and not having that overwhelm your thoughts the entire time...

I often wonder if I could find it within me to match the courage these young men had in any similar situation.

I wonder the same thing. Would our generation step up to the plate like this generation did? What would happen if a war broke out today and Americans had to give up their cell phones (for example) for the cause?

Am I the only one who finds it amusing that D-Day is also Doughnut Day?

A mere "thank you" to the those brave men seems so insufficient. But it's the best I've got.

There has been plenty of wars the US has been involved in after WW2, just not recently one big enough that required a draft. Vietnam required one.
