Take time today to think of the honourable soldiers who died today while taking Normandy from the Germans. The French should kiss the US's feet, were it not for us they would be speaking German and eating sausage.

The French are scum and should be whipped off the face of the planet. :x

I think the British should take this time to put ourselves back on the map by taking France clean off it! Get the Lancaster’s back out. Dust them off and load them up with a few bouncing bombs. Have a good time with Paris then. :lol: :lol: :lol:


I don’t know about anyone else but if I were one of the veterans I wouldn’t want a minuets silence. I’d want a minuet of clapping or something like that. :(


Other than that thanks to all the men (on all sides) for their unfair sacrifice, you’ll always be remembered because you changed the world so much.




We still have no head of state there by the way. Embarrassing. :oops: :cry:





Edit: Was going to have a BBQ today but it's raining. :cry:

What better way to celebrate than going to a gun show where a bunch of vets hang out?
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

Smoking Ribs and scattering dead Soldiers all over the table!

I prefer " TALL BOYS "

My old next door neighbor was on that beach, he never talked about it. He had a few medals and a purple heart from that war. We only knew of the Purple heart because he had the license plate on his car, learned of the medals after his death in the early 90's.

A humble man, and as nice as anyone you'd ever care to meet. Sad how times change through each generation!

I agree with Billy~~

wow, thirty years ago i knew more than a few guys who had hit the beach..
more than a couple in vet care, minds gone from the time they hit that sand..
i also knew guys that somehow got off the beach, and got inland..
more than one told me of half dead guys in their way, some encouraging them on as they were stepped over..
it's good that we remember this.
as far as frtench..
without them, we wouldn't be here.
we'd still be kissing english ass.
or half functional sub states of canada..


we might have owed them, but i figure that debt has been paid.
but know this..
almost to a person, the french in the normady area know it..
and a vet, or vets family, wants for nothing there..
same in holland, and belgium, and luxemborg..

i'd venture to say, they probably collectively remember better than we..

we only remember once a year..
they live it every day, when they look at their families, and the graveyards over looking their towns.

they don't have to kiss our butts, or even like our politics..
they don't even have to like our wonderful made for TV culture..
but, they won't forget..
not as fast as we have.

Its hard to imagine a more thoughtful post, or a better reflection on the reality of that day. I saw a documentary on this very subject years ago. It was about a few guys who had been there and survived and how they wanted to go back and visit the area and the people but didn't have the means to do so. They decided that it was just too important for them personally not to go despite the expense.

In short once they were found out by the locals ( took all of a few minutes ) to be Americans much less that they had actually fought in that battle, they paid for NOTHING. Food, board, airfare home, all paid by the locals of that area.
