This is my father around seventy-two years ago when he was in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. I’ve heard people from that era described as “America’s Greatest Generation.” I certainly believe that. Today is the seventieth anniversary of the Normandy Invasion when the allies landed on the European continent to defeat Adolph Hitler and the Nazis. I honor the many thousands of people who gave their lives so that the world could be safe and the people could be free.
