Please take a moment to remember those who fought and died for our Nation on June 6, 1944, D-Day, on the shores of Normandy.


She's sitting on the front porch
on a lazy, warm June day
She watches her youngest boy
as he goes about his play

He runs around the back yard
helping Brother win the war
He'll find those dirty Nazis
and he'll give them all what for

Her oldest lies on a beach
hands no longer claw the sand
Just one of many thousands
who died when they took a stand

A world away, Mama prays
for the safety of her boys
Meanwhile, the surf turns red
as Allied lives are destroyed

She's sitting on the front porch
on a lazy, warm June day
She watches her youngest boy
as he goes about his play

He runs around the back yard
helping Brother win the war
He'll get those dirty Nazis
and he'll give them all what for

For a moment it brought back the fist size lump that I carried in my solar plexus back then. And shooting the Nazis with a wooden rifle didn't help!

Karla, you have opened a hornets next herein, as Tom and Andy need to both take a valium, that was a long time ago, and while I support all troops being one in a different "war", still being upset over how the 2nd one was won or lost, shows how the world still needs to find peace together...

A tribute herein you have done, dear Karla, and as always, a soapbox found...Peace thru WHATEVER it takes, Ed & Rufuz

THIS IS A GREAT WRITE POET!!!…

AND IF IT WERE NOT FOR AMERICA LENDING THE MIGHTY BRITISH EMPIRE AND ALL OF OUR OTHER ALLIES… OUR MEN, WOMEN AND MATERIAL… THERE PROBABLY WOULD NOT BE A FREE WORLD TODAY!!!

AND… IF IT WERE NOT FOR AMERICA FINALLY JOINING THE FIGHT AGAINST THE EVIL TRIAD OF NATIONS WHO WERE HELL BENT ON RULING THE WORLD… IT WOULD HAVE ALREADY IMPLODED!!!!!!

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND ITS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hang on Karla, great britian took the brunt, defied the world, and paved the way for peace. We had to fight for our kingdom alone at 10 to 1 against, America said we would not last 3 weeks before being a strangled nation. like france was in under 6 days. No-one should under estimate us or be it at their final peril, as Argintina still lament.



On all stadiums America waved flags saying leave brits too it, there no loss.



defing all odds since agincourt, we one, paved the way for American safety, before D R would allow help, as deaths meant votes.



America did a grand job, but not for the free world, but only for american interests.



At first America sided with the then thought winners, Germany.



CHURCHILL the only great leader in 1000 yrs, taught america, that brains beats braun.



The empire did it. HOLLYWOOD say's different, James Coburn, Frankie won it. NO aussies, south africa, N Z, India, canada, who came to help first. with the mad poles, who faught fearlessly.in all weathers.



America only faught D day on fine weather, Empire faught anywhen.

was nice of america to join in at the end, and in all hollywood films only america faught. kinda like indians and hollywood cowboys lies.



We thank america for the belated help. "england when falls to nazi germany is no financial lose" NY TIMES. but ENGLAND taught the world a lesson. with the right leader, proper training. right is might.



WW2, goes to Aussies, NZ, SA, Poland, Britania, India, Ghurkas, Canada and the greatest mortal ever WINSTON SPENCER CHURCHILL, and the late arrival of the yanks when they realised England had done the impossible. As far as a big force badly trained nation realised.



America being earths only nation never to win a war alone...



GOD BLESS THE REALM, and america chosing the winning side.

AND FOR WINNING THE WAR ALONE, IN HOLLYWOOD...

A timely piece, Karla. Our freedoms so often depend on people who are prepared to give their lives. How sad that this should be so.

I hope you're being good to yourself.
