The 70th Anniversary of D-Day is nearly upon us and this may well be the final time that surviving participants of that momentous day will be on hand to commemorate that event.
As an ASL player, I am pleased to be playing the Pegasus Bridge Campaign Game at this time and I expect that my opponent and I will come close to completing it very near the 70th Anniversary of the battle. So in advance of that I would like to submit this post to remember those who fought for the liberty of Western Europe in those dark days of Nazi Occupation. Our world will never be completely free of those who would try to take away our liberty...but thankfully, there will always be those who will stand up and defend it. So I tip my hat to those heroes of Pegasus Bridge and remember also their opponent, whose cause was so completely unworthy of his personal valor.
Hail Britannia and Vive le France!
The face of Heroism given a moment to reflect on that great purpose to which he dedicated a portion of his life. To all Veterans...thank you.
