Recently we observed Memorial Day, honoring all military veterans who made the supreme sacrifice.
June 6 was the 66th anniversary of D-Day, The Invasion of Normandy, those bloody battles helped the Allied Forces turn the tide of WW II, stopped Hitler and saved the world. The veterans who did not come home are buried all over Europe.
Presently, WW II veterans live in every community, they attend Memorial Day services and take part in various ways. American people owe all veterans, including all military serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, a huge debt of gratitude.
On Memorial Day, President Obama chose to abandon the time-honored tradition of placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier; instead he chose to speak at a Lincoln statue in Chicago. As Commander-in-Chief he should show more respect! After unaffordable Obamacare, it's unthinkable Obama is trying to push his pet Cap and Trade Bill through on the back of the oil spill in the Gulf, which cost 11 lives as well as devastation to the Gulf. And before the oil leak is stopped.
