Remembering those who fought and died on the beaches of Normandy on this D-Day back in 1944

True words from a friend of PPPD, Jason "The Viking" Wyman: Memorial day is to honor those that gave their last drop of life to water the tree of freedom. It's for those that are engraved on steel bracelets worn by the brothers that miss them. Memorial day is like any other day for a veteran; we think of those we'll only ever see in our memories. This Memorial Day, as you look at the Stars and Stripes waving in the breeze as you cook up some burgers and hotdogs or watch the parade; remember those that laid beneath it as it drapes their final resting place. Enjoy your Memorial Day America.
