As you all know, tomorrow is June 6th, the day American, British, and Canadian forces landed on the Normandy beaches and parachuted behind enemy lines. Thousands of brave soldiers lost their lives on that day. Let's all take the time and have a moment of silence for all the men who layed their lives on the line to ensure freedom and liberty throughout the world. This D-Day anniversary has reached a milestone, in that the German and Russian presidents will be attending the ceremonies for the first time in 60 years. The British Prime Minister and the French and American presidents will also be attending, along with the brave veterans who survived the assault. The French president has declared a no-fly zone over the Normandy beaches for the anniversary and any aircraft who fly over will be shot down. So, take the time to remember all the braves soldiers who died on D-Day and think about all that they have done for us. 21 gun salute! We are all gratefull for your services toward your country and no one shall ever forget it.
Well put! Yes we should all take this time to remember those brave souls who gave their lived on that day, the german defenders, the canadians, the british, and the americans.
anyone who makes any volger posts to this should be shot!, now have a nice day! :)
I would jus like to speak on the behalf of my grandpa, who does know about this thread.
He fought with the 5th Rangers as a Scout/Kinda Sniper from D-Day to VE day. He was damn proud of who he fought with and what he fought for. To everyone who gives thanks to my grandpa for what he did, he can only say this: "I was only doing what I thought was right. Say thanks to the guys who didnt come back home."
God bless them all.
It would be great if there were multiplayer servers out there that will actually hold a one minute silence. Imagine, everyone ceasing fire as a mark of respect for the people that were actually there. to me thats sounds like the least we could do for the cost they lay down.
Tell your Grandad. Thankyou. I for one am ever greatfull. :bows:
on that D-Day tournament thingy, they should have a few guys shoot M1s in the air and have a moment of silence.
I live in Australia and it is D-Day today, and I would like to say that it was not only American, British, and Canadian soliders who lost their lives, but also Australias, I know it isnt as many as the others, but 33 Australian Naval Officers lost their lives driving the landing boats to the beach. As well as that some of our RAAF pilots went down over enemy territory. Thanks to all those who lost their live, and to those who made it home, for fighting for our freedom, because if it wasnt for them, not many of us would be here. #5hifty (Also even my best friend celebrates this day even tho his Grandpa, who was a Nazi, lost his voise box flying Nazi bombers)
That's what this thread is for, to honor and recognize all the brave soldiers who fought on D-Day, no matter how small of a part they played. They will not be forgoten.
