The 75th Anniversary of D-Day, as Seen by a 97-Year-Old D-Day Veteran

75 years after Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy, France — which remains the largest invasion involving land & water — it’s as important as ever to honor and celebrate the brave soldiers who risked their lives in World War II and changed the world. The ripples of water on Normandy’s coast between the years 1944 and 2019, defined by war then and peace now, as well as the immeasurable consequence of succeeding more than seven decades ago, must be remembered forever.

As reported on CNN,

In a broadcast message to troops before they leave, Eisenhower tells them, “The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory…We will accept nothing less than full victory!”

Here is the full speech (with footage from World War II) by General Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Since it is the 75th anniversary of D-Day, it seems fitting to commemorate this historical occasion with something special for one of the American soldiers who fought bravely on the beaches of Normandy in 1944 by parachuting into life-threatening danger.

97-year-old Tom Rice, who was a member of the 101st Airborne Division as a Paratrooper during World War II, is an inspiration to us all.

Thank you, Mr. Rice and all of the soldiers who fought for the Allied Forces in Normandy on D-Day 75 years ago.

Happy Memorial Day

Why do Americans celebrate Memorial Day? Watch the video below, as the late President Ronald Reagan has the answer.

Thank you to all of those men and women who have served this country and who paid the ultimate price to defend the United States and all of the priceless freedoms we are afforded today.

Happy Memorial Day. 

Happy Memorial Day

Today we honor those in the U.S. armed forces who have died to protect and defend the United States of America.

God bless all the men and women, and their loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.

Seals & Their Cold Splashes

Time to hit the showers cold shower.

Jimmy’s Daily Planet strives to be on the cutting-edge of a variety of topics and issues. For today’s edition, this involves an interesting tidbit that will likely not receive a standing ovation. However, keep in mind this advice is coming from a Navy SEAL. And it was an elite branch of Navy SEALs who took down Osama Bin Laden, so there may be something truly real (and incredibly badass) about this showering curveball.

If somebody would like to experiment with this frigid Act III in their showering routine, please do so and report back in the comments section below.

I’ll take your word (and Navy SEAL Clint Emerson’s word) on it.
