Powerful poem about an unbelievable battle. I can't imagine being one of those boys running up the beach into enemy fire, seeing friends drop dead on all sides, wondering if you were next. Thank God war isn't so up close and personal anymore. Air power, drones, special ops... I can't see soldiers doing that...even then. Unreal.

A truly wonderful poem Mr. Dean. Your pictures, as usual, are stunning...especially the young boy holding out his arm, he looks about 15. I love the line...'I learned to hate, but little more'...doesn't that just sum it all up? A shame. This is definitely a six, which I don't have, sorry. Blessings...

With your great skills, both poetic and technical, including your choice of powerful relevant images, you shake the reader to the core with this tribute to those who voluntarily sacrificed so much to preserve the cause of freedom for us all. We must never forget that "Greatest Generation" lest the forces of Evil re-create the horrors of that time. The vote of the American people just averted World War III, yet the thugs paid for by George Soros to incite riots in rejection of the will of the people prove once again that eternal vigilance is required for continuance of freedom. This poem and its presentation as a whole ought to be seen far beyond FanStory. It is also proof once again that your best work comes from your big heart. Superb, my friend.

Your poem is really heart felt Dean. I was taken into the poem from the beginning. This is such a fine to tribute to these men of war. One of the best I've read. There is really no words for this fine piece. It blew me away. Thanks for the read. I'm out of six.

This is very moving, Dean. Your words combined with the accompanying pictures make this piece extremely emotional. Especially for those of us whose family members were maimed or killed in wars. This is a stunning tribute to all our enlisted men who fought for the freedoms we enjoy today. Excellent writing.

Hello, Dean,

This is a masterfully written poem about D-day. You capture the horror of that fateful day for so many brave men and women. The piece was riveting all the way through but the first picture touched me the most; waiting in the LCP for it to finally get to shore and then...chaos!
I always appreciate the expert presentation of your work and the way you bring the action to the page...well done!
A great tribute for Veterans Day, Dean, nice job.
Have a great afternoon,
Bill

Hi Dean, again a very strong poem about two terrible wars. But then again all wars are horrible and leave such terrible scars. All the best. Ulla:))

I am so sorry I am all out of sixes. I had an uncle who fought in WWII, they told me when I was little it was called "shell shocked" back then what we call PTSD.
Such young kids who gave up so much of themselves to give us so much today. Had Hitler prevailed, I don't even want to think of what that might look like.
You have written a most amazing poem that is no less than perfection. You have captured the terror and the bravery of those who stormed the beaches of Normandy and saved our future. And of course as always, stunning presentation.

We all should be thankful everyday for all of the brave young people who serve and sacrifice to protect our freedom. Most never fully heal from their wounds, many of their scars invisible. Where are all those sixes when I need them most. Thanks for another great read. :-)

This is a wonderful ode full of strong images of the Dday invasion and your respect for those who lost their lives and had their lives changed forever. I like the artwork and videos.

Keep writing

Joan
