76 years ago today.

It wasn't your land
But it was part of the plan
From ship to shore,
O' the courage you bore
200 yards of low tide sand
Soaked in blood, many a man
6603 American lives lost, 3 hours, frantic
6603 families permanently shattered across the Atlantic
Lives sacrificed for liberation, oppression lifted
Proving forever that freedom is earned not gifted
A once un-famous beach stained in maroon
Never forget Normandy Beach 1944 June!
