June 6, 2010

The D-Day assault on the beaches of Normandy may be the most sublime military action in history. Just think about it. Courage and determination challenging a powerful evil foe. The good guys prevail after hard and desperate fighting. Hitler's fate is sealed. The war in Europe ends 11 months later.

D-Day is sublime because the men who stormed those beaches in the face of certain death made it all work. They overcame their fears to perform with daring, skill and just plain endurance.

Whenever I think sheer courage, I think Jun 6, 1944.
