LOD_SM_NormandyJune 6, 1944: After months of careful planning, deceptive tactics and ingenious misdirection, 150,000 Allied troops descended upon the heavily-guarded beaches of Normandy—all of them knew that victory could come at a terrible cost. The early morning hours brought about a scene unlike any other; the crash of the waves; the spitfire of bullets raining down from low-flying planes zooming overhead; bombs bursting on the shore. For WWII veteran paratrooper John Perozzi, the vivid memories of that day have stayed with him for 70 years.

Watch this inspiring video honoring the 70th anniversary of D-Day with LtCol Oliver North and the Frontlines team as they joined 94-year-old Perozzi on what is likely to be his last journey back to the site of the D-Day invasion. With all the weakness displayed by our “leaders” lately along with cowards deserting our fine men and women of our elite military, it’s nice to see pieces like this that remind us how lucky we are to be Americans. Thanks to our news partners at the NRA for sharing this with us.
