Many thanks to reporter Jeff Wilkinson and The State for the excellent coverage of the D-Day anniversary on June 6. As a World War II history buff, it was awesome reading these veterans’ stories. We should all have tremendous respect for these heroic veterans who stormed Normandy’s shores to protect our freedoms, along with all the other veterans who served in the many campaigns of the war.
When self interest seems the only motivation left, it reminds us of a better time when young men and women rose to the challenge and saved the world from a new dark age. We can only hope that the next time it happens, others will be ready to step in.
