They are dying off fast, and I'm glad the WWII memorial in Wash DC was built in time, so some of them could see it.
We can never thank them enough.
The word HERO is used far too often but those men on D-Day were real heros.
Those guys literally saved the world.

Anyone think there was a more important day than June 6 1944?
Moon landing? VJ Day? 11-11-11? Dec 7 1941? JFK assassination?
All important and significant, but June 6th is the most important.
Dutch I think we learned a lot from WWII, but have forgotten much of it. How many young people even know what D-Day was? Not many. Most are more worried about what the Kardashian whores are doing or who won Dancing with the Idiots.
