A toast to them, all that came before them, those that have fought after them

and to all who serve today and in the future..

To each serve with honor using your advanced training and all of our resouces at hand to win the battles that each face.

Which we pray will win the wars in the end.. And each of you need more prayers from every American who is alive.

God Bless and keep each of you warriors safe.

I had to post in the Iraqi thread as I had that page opened. I then found this on LIFE's slide shows in pictures.

LIFE slideshow: Before and after D-Day, in color

By Joao Costa– 1 hr 44 mins ago





Calm before the storm.... One picture at the site.


It's no mystery why images of shocking, unremitting violence spring to mind when one hears the deceptively simple term, "D-Day." We've all seen -- in black-and-white photos, movies, old news reels -- what happened on the beaches of Normandy as the Allies unleashed an historic assault against German defenses on June 6, 1944. But in rare, color photos taken before and after the invasion, LIFE photographer Frank Scherschel captured countless other, lesser-known scenes from the run-up to the onslaught and the heady weeks after: American troops training in small English towns; the French countryside, implausibly lush after the spectral landscape of the beachheads; the reception GIs enjoyed en route to the capital; the liberation of Paris. As presented here, in masterfully restored color on the anniversary of D-Day, Scherschel's pictures feel at-once profoundly familiar and somehow utterly, vividly new.
