    Arriving on that beach must have been terrifying in a way I will never be able to comprehend.

    Great photos as always, LT

    This scene gives me chills everytime. I cant even comprehend what it must have been like.

    This was a lot of soldiers first action of the war too which is even more insane.

    Pics and film about Normandy as well as any other footage shown about the battles of WWII make my eyes leak for those children who were brave enough to do battle under such circumstances. Thanks, LT, as always!

    God bless all these men. We are so fortunate to have had such a selfless generation of people who gave so much for future generations to have. If they said we couldn't eat fast food for a year or America would blow up I don't think we could do it as a country
    These men and women truly built America and I think of that every time I drive on a highway

    Great respect for those men. I suspect everyone of them is rolling over in his grave after seeing what's become of our country and the pussies we've become.

    That's probably the most brutal depiction of war that I've ever seen.
