The Longest Day

There is significant, warranted attention being paid to the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. As a blogger and as a veteran myself of both large and small wars, I find it difficult to do sufficient honor to those who fought on D-Day and during the Second World War in general. Huge sacrifices were made to rid the world of National Socialism and Imperial Japan. 


When it comes to issues like dropping the atomic bomb on Japan, I can only suggest that they deserved it. There were horrible things done by the Nazis in the name of National Socialism and the agenda that its leadership espoused. In my opinion, the Japanese rape of Korea and China was just as bad. They all got what was coming to them. We owe a debt that we can't repay to those who set things right, often at the cost of their own lives. All we can do is pay it forward and uphold the principles that they fought for.
