Let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail

On this day eighty years ago, operation OVERLORD, the largest amphibious invasion in military history landed on the beaches of Normandy, France. Almost 133,000 troops from the United States, Britain and their allies landed on D-Day. The effort would eventually bring the end to World War II in Europe.

Eight decades later, we still owe and honor them for their sacrifice.

From the prayer of Franklin D. Roosevelt:

And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

From the speech given by Ronald Reagan on the 40th Anniversary in 1984.

Something else helped the men of D-day: their rock hard belief that Providence would have a great hand in the events that would unfold here; that God was an ally in this great cause. And so, the night before the invasion, when Colonel Wolverton asked his parachute troops to kneel with him in prayer he told them: Do not bow your heads, but look up so you can see God and ask His blessing in what we’re about to do. Also that night, General Matthew Ridgway on his cot, listening in the darkness for the promise God made to Joshua: “I will not fail thee nor forsake thee.”

If you haven’t had the chance to visit the D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia, you should take the opportunity to do so.

The small town of Bedford sent 44 soldiers, sailors, and airmen to the beaches that day. Before the day was over, 20 of these men had given their all for their country. Bedford suffered America’s highest per capita D-Day loss.

It is fitting that the home of The Bedford Boys is the home of the National D-Day Memorial.

Cardinal News presents D-Day, in the words of the Virginians who were there.

I am grateful every day for the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform. And while I sometimes wonder how we might face the challenge if faced with similar circumstances, which I hope and pray never happens. But, if it should, I pray that we might find that American resolve buried deep within us.
