Today Is D-Day

By Greg L | 6 June 2010 | Patriotism | 4 Comments

Today is the anniversary of D-Day, when National Guard soldiers from Maryland and Virginia joined the first wave of the invasion that ultimately freed Europe from Nazi rule.  The 29th Division was the only Guard unit participating in the first wave and suffered tremendous casualties at one of the toughest sectors of the fight, Omaha Beach.  A few survivors from that fight are still with us today.  If you see the above unit patch on an elderly man, make sure you thank him for what he did.

    Not to state the obvious but just in case someone doesn’t understand the patch, the blue and gray represent the fact that right before WW I it was formed up with National Guard units from New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia i.e. states from the Confederacy and states that remained in the Union.

    The 29th is now made of units from Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina.

    Obama ignores D-Day, observes his need to party:

    “Why should he celebrate D-Day? In his view, the wrong side won.”

    Guess Obama didn’t want to offend Helen Thomas.

    America needs to wake up and remember the past and what our Fathers and grandfathers fought and died for. If we stay apathetic any longer, we will no longer have a country of our own. We need leaders who believe in the Constitution and the oath they take. Truth and Honor must be restored. When I entered military service, I took an oath to protect this country from enemies, foreign and domestic. I am no longer in the military, but I still believe in the oath I took. My father and uncles fought in WWII to end Facism, I will not let the Socialist take over our Country.
