D-Day Remembered

On this day in 1944, Allied Forces stormed the beaches of France to retake Fortress Europe from Hitler's Third Reich.  Rarely in current conflicts have troops faced such a daunting task as climbing the cliffs at Point Du Hoc to knock out artillery which could spell defeat for your guys down on beach, or running over open beach at a MG bunker spitting MG fire at your landing craft.  All of this after three or four years away from home.

Whenever you feel like life is hard, think back to those guys and realize we have it pretty easy.
