The history of the world changed 74 years ago today. The continent of Europe was invaded to end Nazi tyranny. Those men were heroes. Every. Last. One. Of. Them. We learned about them in school. Our fathers and grandfathers were there. Some came home. Some are still there.
In our education system today, American history isn’t even taught. Kids have no idea where their freedom came from and who paid for it. They don’t care. They’re preoccupied with social nonsense of the day, mostly life with a phone in their hand.
There are but a very small handful of men who went through that hell. They’re almost gone. When they are, so will end the best we ever had as a nation. Most kids today never even heard of World War II. They couldn’t care less. Too bad they don’t realize that these men were more badass than these snowflakes ever dreamed of being.
Today Is The Anniversary Of D-Day. Here’s How Bada** Our Paratroopers Were
It’s almost hard to put into words just how incredible the paratroopers who brought the fight to the Germans really were. These were young men, often younger than myself, who were jumping out of planes to surprise, fight, capture and kill the enemy on that fateful day in Normandy

Shameless blog pimping: The most amazing lie in history: How a chicken farmer, a pair of princesses, and 27 imaginary spies helped the Allies win World War II
When “Saving Private Ryan” came out, we took our youngest (then 13 yo) and her friend to the multiplex and let them go see something lighter. When we met up after, Dearest and I were in tears. I remember tell the girls rather fiercely, “Don’t let me ever catch you not voting! People DIED so you could have that right!” Our daughter was taken aback and just said, “Oooookay.” She later joined the Marine Corps.
