Normandy invasion marks last with full U.S. support

OlympiaJune 7, 2014 

June 6 marks the 70th anniversary of the largest military landing and assault on the shores of Normandy, France. It was the one of bloodiest battles of World War II with huge American losses. Many Allied soldiers were just fodder to use up German ammunitions.

As more and more veterans from this conflict are aging and dying, there is already some amnesia about the importance of WWII. It is and, I’m sure, will always be the last war our country has entered into with the full support of both U.S. political parties and U.S. citizenry.

As we grieve over the loss of all those serving their country, we should realize we will never see this kind of whole-hearted agreement about what is worth fighting for ever again.
