    Dark times, but it had to be done. Can only imagine the waiting, and cannot fathom the actual combat that alot of these guys faced. I don't care how far on auto-pilot you are, storming a beach full of pissed off, and experienced German soldiers with machine guns takes massive quantities of mas macho. Those guys in the 2nd RB and 1-29 caught holy hell, but they took the beachhead... even after scaling bluffs in some instances and charging over open fields of fire.

    Yup, and now we are reduced to "not offending" each other... Brokaw had it right, The Greatest Generation.
