Re: D-Day of Sorts

Congratulations! Now, get back to training.. :-)

Coincidentally, I have just finished reading Stephen Ambrose's "D-Day", which chronicles the events of 6 June 1944 in Normandy, France, based on the oral histories of the men and women who took part. I believe it is a tribute to the efforts of these people when we refer to our own towering personal challenges as our "D-Day".
Just to give perspective, please reflect on what the men of Charlie Company, 2nd Ranger Battalion, had to undergo when they waded ashore on Omaha beach..
