Remembering D-Day

Remembering D-Day

Since today marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day, I wanted to play Reagan’s speech from the 40th anniversary. I can’t get enough Reagan this week. President Reagan always told us how God and prayer played a part in our American history. I think we need more God & prayer today. God bless the “greatest generation” who fought in WWII. May we never forget them.- Alexis

The following video is from the Reagan Foundation & Library

 

The courageous piper who played his comrades ashore during the D-Day landings and was mentioned in Reagan’s speech is honored in the video below. Bill Millin was ordered to keep playing his bagpipes to boost morale as fellow soldiers were killed around him. His actions were later immortalized in the film The Longest Day. Widower Mr Millin, a Scot, lived in Devon for 45 years. He moved to a nursing home in Dawlish after suffering a major stroke. He passed away in 2010 at age 88.

  1. Where do we get such men. Contrast our great Reagan with our current suit and chair-sitter in the White House, and I think that you will find him wanting, and, near treasonous in comparison.

    • Yes, it is night & day. They are polar opposites. Obama’s lawlessness and incompetent Marxism makes me appreciate Reagan even more. Thanks for you comment Thomas. Please stop by more often & chat with us.

    I love Ronald Reagan. I miss him. He inspired, and still inspires me today.
    We need prayer – on our knees prayers – more now than ever. God bless you Alexis for all that you do!
