Excerpted from the June 6th, 1944 prayer by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the launch of Operation Overlord, commonly known as D-Day...

......"With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances’. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace, a peace invulnerable to the scheming of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.
Thy will be done, Almighty God.
Amen."
                                                                                  Franklin Delano Roosevelt
                                                                                  D-Day, June 6th, 1944

4.414 American soldiers died on the beaches of Normandy in the D-Day Invasion.  May we never forget...
