Tomorrow is the 65th anniversary of D-Day, the largest amphibious invasion of any piece of terrority in history. On June 6, 1944 hundreds of thousands of Allied troops, primarily American, stormed Fortress Europe to begin delivering the death blow to Hitler's evil empire. I wanted to honor the brave young men who gave their all--meaning, for many of them, their lives--to restore and defend freedom's light in the world. I was going to write a post but tonight on "Hannity" a clip was shown of Ronald Reagan's speech at Normandy on the 40th anniversary of D-Day. That clip was so moving that I found the whole speech on YouTube and decided to post it on my blog. Here is the heartfelt tribute to the heroes of Normandy, delivered the way only the Great Communicator could. Listen, be proud, and get your Kleenex.

I had the pleasure of hearing that speech immediately afterward; what a tribute.

My own remembrance to D-Day is posted.
