D-DAY + 68 YEARS--"THE STORY TO END ALL STORIES WAS D-DAY"

All things worth having come at a price. Freedom is certainly worth having and the Allied Nations paid dearly for it sixty-eight years ago.

Take a moment to consider the scene pictured above.

Many of the GIs you see wading through the water didn't live but a few moments after that
picture was taken. All of them had to be sick with fear; their minds racing with thoughts of loved ones back home and of the job ahead of them.

Everything we have and hold dear today was bought and paid for by the brave GIs in that picture. Think about it.
