69 Years ago today

I usually post a photo of the Normandy beach landings.  This year, I thought I would post a thoughtful montage of scenes from the Airborne drop over Normandy that happened hours before the beach landings.

The footage is from the incredible 2001 HBO miniseries, Band of Brothers.

Thank God that our country produced men such as these.

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!

God give us heroes to fight our present tyranny.
