Never has so Much Been Owed to so Few

This article brings up a very somber but realistic point: Over 1,500 World War Two veterans pass away each day. So much is owed to these individuals who sacrificed so much for the greater good of the world. For that I am immensely grateful and appreciative.

So many of these men who fought on a foreign battlefield have never had the opportunity to return. However, for some it becomes possible through the Greatest Generation Foundation. For many of these people the opportunity to go back to a place visited sixty years ago is impossible without outside support. This foundation has made it happen. As stated in the article it allows for loose ends to be closed.

Even for me, visiting Normandy was a very powerful experience. You get a picture of what so many people went through but know in the back of your mind that you will never understand the real picture unless you were actually there. These men were there and I think it is fantastic that this foundation allows them to go back and close a chapter and pay respects to their fallen comrades.
