Today is the 66th anniversary of D-Day — the Allied invasion of Normandy. It was the beginning of the end for the Reich. The beginning of hope for so many. The beginning of a hellish day, week, month or time on the European continent for Allied soldiers. Many would not make it back. And we have so much to thank them for. The world as we know it would be severely different if the evil fascist dictators stayed in power to ply their wicked plans.

I was lucky enough to shake hands with some WWII veterans during one of my business trips a few weeks ago. These are very humble men who discount their courage, honor, struggle, and sacrifice. They are giants in my eyes and definitely one of the greatest generations who lived and served.

Thanks to those WWII vets, especially those who sacrificed 66 years ago.
