After all of the news about the last Honor Flight from South Carolina to Washington, I was appalled that there was no mention of the June 6, 1944, D-Day invasion anniversary in Monday’s paper.
None of the assault forces secured their first-day objectives. From D-Day through Aug. 21, the Allies landed more than 2 million men in Northern France and suffered more than 226,386 casualties.
The men and women of our country, then and now, have never failed to answer the call to fight against tyranny anywhere in the world. We need to remember them and honor them on all occasions.
