June 6, 1944 - June 6, 2010



It has been sixty six years since the invasion of Normandy, making today the two-thirds-a-centennial of this great event.

By this invasion, which ultimately freed Europe up to the Elbe, the West was saved. (It simply took us another forty-nine years to finish the job.)

Let us never forget.*

(And yes, I know I posted the above only last week. So sue me.)

ADDENDUM

This weekend also marks the end of the 68th anniversary of the Battle of Midway, possibly the most devastating naval victory in the history of civilization--where 37 aircraft broke the back of the Japanese empire in less than five minutes.

Again, let us never forget.

==================
*Oh, and Uncle Tom? Thank you again.
