To all of those who sacrificed their lives so that others could live free, thank you.
Lest We Forget!!!!
If my father was correct, we have a cousin buried somewhere in Normandy.
75 years ago today the free world struck back, remember their sacrifice, the armed forces, the civilians caught in the middle, all because of one man’s lust for power…..
Where were you on D-Day?
I heard the other day that many veterans who survived Normandy are going back to the site this week.
Today, erstwhile politicians, who weren’t even born at the time of ‘D-Day’ will equate Climate Change with the sacrifice which thousands made in order to free the world of tyranny. I doubt that many (if any) of them will observe today’s commemorations, because the site of so many ‘Crosses’ might offend them.
The more I learn about Eisenhower, the more respect I have for the man. D-Day was an event unparalleled in history even to this day. However, my greatest respect was for the speech he did not have to deliver: the one in the event that the invasion failed. In the draft of that speech he had nothing but praise for all those involved and took total responsibility for the defeat. He went on to become president
Nearly two decades later another president had to deal with an invasion. This one at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. In his speech, Kennedy said, “Success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan.” Kennedy adopted that orphan and took total responsibility for the defeat.
Where is that kind of integrity in the world today?
I have a friend who is a British paratrooper. He and his brigade are jumping Normandy from a Dakota (C-47 – the same kind of aircraft used on D-Day). I am so envious of him! He promised me pictures.
The bravery of Snoopy could ‘t be missed on this Day.
A truly classic Peanuts
""When the signal is given, the whole circle of avenging nations will hurl themselves at the foe and batter out the life of the cruelest tyranny which has ever sought to bar the progress of mankind." – That day is today.
Thanks to all who served and to those that gave it their all, we salute you
The 6th. year in a row this 1996 D-Day strip was rerun!
❤️ Thank you ❤️
I wasn’t thought of back then but I have enormous respect for anyone who has served in the military.
A toast to Charles Schulz for always remembering and saluting our soldiers and veterans. To Remember—always.
This looks like the same strip every June 6. But it’s ok. It’s precious.
bob dont say that becuase peoplez family could have died by the inciddent!
My 26 year old American soldier dad, landed on Omaha Beach at 7:30 am, 75 years ago. He was in the fourth wave off the boat.
I think they repeat this one every year. Love It.
It’s not all root beers with Bill Mauldin.
How I miss Charles Schulz and his daily work. Such a classic strip.
“Rest in Peace, All is Well. God is nigh.” Last words of Taps.
Thank You, Mr. Schulz, Snoopy, for helping us Not to forget..
Lets not forget the disaster that preceded d-day….
On D-Day my mother was about 4 years old.
Hard to believe it’s been 75 years since then.
Indeed it was and indeed it Will away be
I’ve had the very great honor to meet a few of the brave men who were part of that tremendous effort (all of them are gone now). To a man, each and every one of them was humble about the part they played in the invasion of Normandy and in WWII as a whole. No matter; to me, they will always be heroes.
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old / Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. / At the going down of the sun and in the morning, / We will remember them.” ― Laurence Binyon, “For the Fallen”
It is great they run this comic still, years after Schultz’s demise…
Thanks to their sacrifice, we live in a free country, and are not subject to the whims of a monstrous dictator who attacks everyone that disagrees with them.
God Bless Our Military and Veterans. You do and have sacrificed so very much for us. We can never repay the debt that we owe you.
