I am oft seen criticizing our cousins who live in the Colonies.
But not today.

Whilst I remember and thank all those who took part in the D Day Landings, I am thankful for the bravest and most worthy of them all.

The young American soldiers who landed on Omaha Beach had the worst of it.
This is not 'Saving Private Ryan', this was 8 hours of hell.

If any deserve a salute for sheer bravery under fire it was they.

1500 dead, 3000 injured, 2000 missing.

It was hell, and still they fought and won.

To those still alive I say thank you, to those that died that day, your life was not lost in vain.
Victory was assured and the war was turned by the actions of those scared young men on that lonely beach.


I do not often dwell on such things, but this was a time when courage was plentiful and despite the fear and the stench of death, the job was done.

One can only hope that such a thing is never going to be necessary ever again.
