Dear Editor:

As the 75th anniversary of D Day arrives, we should express our most sincere gratitude to all of those soldiers who sacrificed their lives on that day when the Allies stormed the German-held beaches at Normandy, France, beginning the liberation of Europe from five years of Nazi terror and tyranny.

So many soldiers were killed and injured during that battle, and those who are still alive who fought there on June 6,1944 deserve special recognition by our country, as well as those who sacrificed their lives at Normandy.

After 75 years, our world must never again be scourged by the terrors of major conflict. Now the world is a much more unstable, dangerous place, because of so many smaller conflicts occurring around the globe, as well as the continuous buildup of nuclear weapons by many countries, including the U.S., China and Russia. World leaders have a responsibility to prevent what happened from 1939 to 1945 to ever happen again, because if major conflict were to break out, all of humankind would not survive, and the world would be plunged into permanent nuclear winter.

God bless all of those brave soldiers who fought in World War II, including at Normandy, on June 6,1944. All of America is forever indebted to you for the sacrifices that you all made, which included many of you sacrificing the greatest gift of all — life!
