69 years ago today

American fighting men saved the world.

It was the largest invasion force the world had ever seen...or would ever see again.

1,465 of those Americans would die before that day was over. Thousands more would die before the job was done and Europe was free of the war they'd gone over there to end. But they did it. WE did it.
To Europe, on behalf of America, I say "You're welcome".

And to those on the continent who today profess disdain or hatred towards our losers can kiss our collective ass. If not for America, you'd likely be cursing us in German today.


  1. Indeed. Great post Murph!

  2. In all fairness, American, British and allied troops saved the world

  3. @ BadFrog: Yes, the British, the Commonwealth and a few of the French did help. So did many other small countries. This is true. But most of the cost was borne by our own Greatest Generation, many of whom never lived to see the morning sun rise on June 7th, 1944.

  4. Very well done Murph!
