D-Day

Crossposted from Michael Bane's Blog. Many of you already remembered today, likely enough. (I'm fairly confident I don't have too many of the scurvy mites who do not care.)

In remembrance,

Spencer

We owe these men plenty

"Many men will count the hours
As they live the longest day
Many men are tired and weary
Many men are here to stay
Many men won't see the sunset

When it ends the longest day
The longest day the longest day
This will be the longest day
Filled with hopes and filled with fears
Filled with blood and sweat and tears
Mant men the mighty thousands
Many men to victory
Marching on right into battle
In the longest day in history"

~Paul Anka's The Longest Day (1962)

I think this one pretty much sums it up for me. [Ace of Spades HQ]

Just out of curiosity, was the World War III label a typo or intentional, and if so, why? ;)

By the way, I'm probably one of the scurvy mites, for I didn't know, then again I may be forgiven for not being American, huh? ;) What the sixth of June means here in my country is our National Day (perhaps what you'd call Independence Day - from them Danes in our case!), then again, I didn't celebrate that either...

fuzzys dad: More than we can easily surmise....

Son III: That was amazing. :-O

WildWeazel: Good one, I like the "I didn't..." perspective. Thanks!

Jonas: Ack! Fixed. (It was supposed to be WWII.) :-P And as to you being scurvy mite, no, no...I said it's those people who don't give a crap about the men who died, not those who forgot the date. You're fine, man. :-D
