We spent the day celebrating my father-in-law’s 86th birthday. But it was more than that. Because he was the commander of an LCT that went in on D-Day. He risked his life for our freedom.

My late father spent the war fighting alongside the British 8th Army against the Axis in North Africa and Italy. He risked his life for our freedom. His battalion suffered casualities an order of magnitude higher than any American forces have suffered in the present war in Iraq.

Our parents’ generation rightly despises the defeatists, the likes of Murtha, Kerry, Teddy Kennedy, and the rest of the treacherous scum that has taken over the party of Roosevelt, Truman and JFK. They know neither honor nor sacrifice.
