TO ALL WHO GAVE SO MUCH ON THAT DAY
Thank you for the remembrance.
I think it was not even mentioned yesterday in the news. And so, I recalled the anniversary for everyone in church today.
I am always struck by the superlatives of that day, but the ones that really focus my mind are:
about 156,000 (one hundred fifty six thousand!) went into France that day; nearly 10,000 were killed; and about half of those in the first hour.
We noticed the same thing. An impending horse race was far more important than remembering a day that was pivotal to keeping the world safe for democracies.
Most Lethal Battles In US History:
Hey, I know few remember the losses of D-Day. Moreso every year. It's a shame.
But who remembers the Argonne of 1918, America's bloodiest battle?
Or all the others?
