Thanks to all of you who were there, from all of us, for liberating Europe from under the boot of oppression and protecting not only our great nation but our Allies as well.

    Hooah!

    SSD, glad you mark the historic anniversaries; it’s a nice reminder.

    Texted the family to remind them about this and told them they all had to do 74 pushups today for the 74th anniversary!

    Without American soldiers, they’d be speaking English in London!

    Great stuff.

    Until fairly recently, a letter like that couldn’t be written and get by the PC police.

    Looking back is a good reminder of what right looks like.

    Thanks SSD.
