    My grandfather was there that day and was lucky enough to make it home. My grandmother, told me once, he came back a different person. I imagine that day was the day that changed many people.

    While it single-handedly changed the war and history, let's hope it never has to happen again. I fear faced with same scenario, I wouldn't have a tenth of the courage my grandfather and those men displayed that day.

    May that day never be forgotten.

    There was a special on the history channel a while back that focused on Sun Tzu and the Art of War. D-Day was one of the focuses and it was mentioned in such a way that agreed with the principals given in "art of war". Basically it said the reason that fight was won was that faced with two options - > fight or death <- you'll be more than likely to give it 100% because your body goes into a response mode where it knows that is the last chance you may have to get out alive.

    I do agree with the sentiment. I would be scared ****less. I too hope it never happens again.
