On June 6, 1944, courageous Americans stormed the beaches of Normandy giving their lives in service of our country. My father was a bombardier on a B-17; his group, among others, were trained to lead the air campaign in advance of the D-Day invasion and the Battle of the Bulge. His patriotism and service in such a time of peril is one of things that has inspired me throughout my life. We pause today to remember those brave souls who made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.
