I meant to post a link to this last Friday, but circumstances intervened.
I had the honor of visiting Sword Beach in September 1989, and met a grateful Frenchman, who gave us a chilling example of what the French were being liberated from. Also, one of my doctors was a Ranger who fought at Pointe du Hoc. Thanks to all who served and serve.
Don't miss your chance to thank these men--they are inexorably passing from our midst. Last year I had the opportunity to thank an Anzio veteran for his service, and I'm glad I took it.
