Sometimes we Americans forget the price paid for our freedom. Thousands died on Omaha and Utah beach and as they drove on inland into France. Many families have stories of their loved ones who fought, some dying, some wounded,  some with mental scars that followed them the rest of their lives. Some of them are still with us and we salute them all. They are all my heroes and when I see pictures of the crosses of American buried in foreign lands, I treasure even more what they have done. Young men, 18, 20 years old. One sergeant was called the old man and he was 24 by some accounts I have read. Soldiers…and families of soldiers who served in World War Two, thank you from the very bottom of my heart for your gift to us……FREEDOM.  God bless America.
