They were our young fathers, grandfathers, first husbands, and brothers...
They gave 62 years of their lives to pay for other people's freedom. It was not their debt, but they paid it.
Most would still be with us were it not for their heroic sacrifice on D-Day. We have lived without them for 62 years, to pay for other people's freedom. It was not our debt but we paid it.
It was not nothing. It was not then. It is now and has been every day for 62 years.
Paying the price for other people's freedom.
