—63rd Anniversary of D-Day



FOXNews.com – Defense Secretary Pays Tribute to Fallen Troops in Normandy at 63rd Anniversary of D-Day

It was a miserably cold, damp, windy, overcast day in February, 2005. I remember the place as one of the loneliest stretches of coastline I’ve ever seen in person. It probably wasn’t just because it was off-season, and we were virtually the only people in the entire cemetery. Despite the best intentions of generations, in the 63 years since the Longest Day we have made more places like this around the world, and there are more to come.
