Can you imagine doing this?
For those who don't know, that view is what our troops saw in the first moments storming Omaha Beach, June 6th, 1944. The Allied invasion of France.

Do you know what today is? It's simple, as most important things are. Here in the U.S.A., It' s Veterans Day. What does that mean? It means that today you should pause to consider your life and how lucky you are to live in a free nation. Freedom is not free. It's not a cliché. It's a fact. None of the things we have or enjoy would be available to us were it not for the sacrifice of those who have served.
So fly your flag, and thank a veteran. And don't ever forget.
