THANK YOU

 

                          On Omaha Beach, (Normandy), Deb and John

 

We were here too: The cemetery above Omaha Beach.  Men of all ages. But mostly many, many, young boys who will never grow old.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for saving the world. Thank you for answering the call to duty. And thank you for putting yourself in harms way. Not for treasure. Not for glory. And the only territory gained is the graveyard and beach. That, (thanks to France) is American soil. We paid for it in American blood.

We have men young and old that have been fighting the war on terror for a decade now. Some come home maimed ; some have given all of their tomorrows. I am old and cannot hope to repay them. So all I can do is say,

THANK YOU
