That's all I need to say .... You all know to which I refer, friend and foe alike. Besides, What words can I invoke to celebrate them, honor them, remember them that could possibly speak loader then the simple power there own act have already stated before the world.

There remains then, only one duty left to perform.


"Detail, Ahhh ... Ten ... Shun!"

"Hand Salute!"



Echo Taps



"Two!"

A local radio station here today just played President Ronald Reagan's speech for the 40th Anniversary of D-Day given at Pont du Hoc. More powerful today than it was when he first gave it. Want to here a real orator? Listen to President Reagan. The delivery and the substance together. WOW!!!!
Thank you to all veteran past and present! You will always have my heart.

D-Day is the reason we can ask- speak English? Instead of 'sprechen Sie Deutsch'?! The difference between those two questions is profound, relative to our way of life!

Always appreciate and be proud of our past and present men and women servicing our country!

That wasn't going to happen as the German navy had very little comprising a navy beyond of a fleet beyond U Boats. There was a deal in place that if Britain was overran that all of the Royal Navy's vessel would sail to the U.S.

The fact of the matter historically was that the Germans did not have the capacity to invade the U.S. I just felt a need to correct that implied fallacy.

However, the sacrifices of our troops and those of our allies on this day 65 years ago cannot be underestimated. Their actions brought about the liberation of Western Europe and led to the end of nazi Germany. My flag proudly flies outside of my home today in honor of those involved as their efforts, that many paid for with their lives, made the world a better place.

Most people don't realize just how far the Germans were technological wise, in the type of weapon systems they either had in mind, were on the drawing boards or were actually being tested, to include biological and radiological warfare, with some vehicles designed to deliver such weapons to the U.S. (somewhat difficult at the time but not impossible) had they not been stopped cold- hence the fortunate, decisive outcome of the Normandy invasion!

Not to mention some of the technology sent to Japan- jet/rocket engine technology for example, that the U.S. and Britain were also developing but quite behind in application of which, some were used by Japan! Hitler made some asinine decisions quite often that fortunately for us and Britain, hampered production of his class of jet fighters (Messerschmitt ME 262). Had he used his head, he would have massed produced the jet that could have prevented bombing of his production facilities in the first place- and we won't get into his V1 flying bomb and V2 missile in production! and plans for his A4, A9, A9/A10, A4b and A4b/A10 missiles- some designed to hit the Eastern portion of the U.S.

I still stand by my comment, knowing what I understand about their capabilities! In this respect, if they had not been stopped and WWII had dragged on for a few more years, a large navy, wouldn't necessarily have been needed- only enough vessels, with enough personnel to affect an end to WWII.
