Letter: Remembering D-Day

Editor, Gazette-Journal:

For those who are World War II kids, June 6, 1944—D-Day—was the day that raised our hopes and increased our prayers. The memories of that time in America’s history are many—some very personal, others simply a part of the war.

We lost a family member over Leyte Gulf; another fought at the Battle of the Bulge, and one more in the Pacific. He was a Marine and a cook, but he loved making a joke out of his time on the islands. He said he really never cooked anything because he was rather busy using his rifle!

I thank God for all these men and their courage that kept all of us safe and I also thank Him for those today who also put serving America first. God bless every one of them!
