For a good cause

Some of you might not know, but  I'm a huge WW II buff. If anyone has ever watched Band of Brothers they know who First Lt. Richard Winters is. Well he passed away in January. I came across this great foundation today. It's a project to put up a statue in normandy to honor Lt. Winters and other junior officers on D-Day. We must not forget those hero's of the past.

Today is D-Day the 6th of June

Well I just got home from work and was expecting to watch something about this day on at least one channel. BUT NOTHING!? The history channel has American Pickers and Pawn Stars on all night, the Discovery channel has American Chopper on and AMC has nothing on either. And watched the 5pm news and not a peep.

On this day the allied forces started their finale push on the axis powers and no one is running anything on this day? We the allies lost around 8,443 brave men on D-Day.

Sad times.....Sad times indeed.
