Honoring our Veterans
The Election of 2016 is over. Instead of burning the American flag or beating up people because they chose to vote differently, those involved should think seriously about those who have fought to make America free. The American flag represents that freedom.
We must never forget history and the bravery of those who fought for our rights…even the rights to peacefully protest. Most of all, we must not forget those who bravely fought to bring the battles to an end. We continue to honor those who are still in harm’s way throughout the world.
World War I….was to be the War that ended all wars. Unfortunately, that did not happen.
Some of the great battles of World War II: The Battle of the Atlantic, The Battle of Britain, The siege of Leningrad, Pearl Harbor, The Battle of Stalin grad, The Invasion of Normandy, The Battle of the Bulge, Battle of Okinawa, The Battle of Berlin
What was victory like for those who fought?
Victory Day, also known as VJ Day, marks the anniversary the Allies’ victory over Japan during World War II.
VJ Day in Honolulu Video….the real thing. Compliments of Richard Sullivan’s father who was there on August 14, 1945 and shot this film.
Names to Remember: Iwo Jima, Saipan, Midway…Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Omaha Beach…and others we have not mentioned. Thank you, Veterans, for your dedication.
Omaha Beach invasion was when the Germans killed about 5,000 men. They were so young and lives cut short. Truly, WAR IS HELL.
