The Longest Day

 

Something for the weekend.  The West Point Glee Club singing the theme from the film The Longest Day (1962).  When the film was released D-Day was only 17 years in the past.  Now, it is 71 years ago this day.  Time moves on and even great historical events become part of the amorphous land we call the past.  D-Day remains in living memory, just barely, but we are rapidly approaching the day when the men that Eisenhower commanded on the Great Crusade will join Grant’s men and Washington’s men and all the other American soldiers who live only on the pages of history and in the hearts of the men and women who live in freedom because of what they did.
