"In all of the far-flung operations of our own Armed Forces the toughest job
has been performed by the average, easy-going, hard-fighting young
American who carries the weight of battle on his own young shoulders.
It is to him that we and all future generations of Americans must pay grateful tribute."

- President Franklin D. Roosevelt
(30 Jan 1882 - 12 Apr 1945)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Seventy years? WOW. You know, I will allow that because of       my daddy's (the late Robert Buckley, M.D. - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 Oct 1907 - 25 Apr 1960) participation in the first hour of D-Day on Omaha Beach, it's possible, just possible, that I've paid slightly more attention to its observance here than most others.  The recap of all that that I posted at the beginning of 2008's issue would certainly indicate that:

http://nnhs65.com/06-06-08-NNHS-D-Day-Plus-64-Years.html - all the way down to the birthdays

   If you study that thoroughly, you may consider that your homework for today.  There will be no test, but you're on your honor to complete your assignment - and what is this day all about if not honor??
