Good Afternoon All,
On this special day, June 6, 2019, when we celebrate and remember the Allied Landing at Normandy, France, 75 years ago on June 6, 1944, we remember those that gave so much. The United States maintains 25 Military Cemeteries in Europe where more than 130,000 men and women are buried and another 124,000 Missing in Action are Memorialized. They are beautiful and magnificent places that arose from the horror of War and Honor our Fallen. We have nothing to apologize for. Last July, I visited Normandy and still feel the majesty, pride and sense of great loss that I felt when I walked upon that hallowed ground. 9388 are buried there. An amazing place as are the other 24 in Europe.
I have taken the liberty of sharing the following (which happens to be a Commercial with no words spoken nor needed). It was sent to me by a dear friend and U.S. Army Veteran that I admire and respect, Ed Riely. Ed shared it on Memorial day and it gets to the heart of remembering today as well. Thank you, God Bless and God Bless America.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

This is their one-minute commercial. Not a word spoken and none is needed.
Very few commercials deserve to go viral. This one does.
