On June 6, 2011 of this year. Many veterans will travel to France to remember that day on the beaches of Normandy storming on the shore. They faced heavy fire from entrenched machine gun nest. Many of these old men remember that day like it was yesterday seeing their good buddies fall on the shore. To some it was considered the longest day. It was a day also when we read about the valor and courage in the campaign to liberate France from NAZI occupation. Many good men are laid to rest close to those very beaches in France.
The warriors who stormed the beaches of France have one more mission to complete. That is when they arrange travel plans to visit to see the beaches were they seen their fellow comrades fall. They will have hotel accommodations arranged. With the pain of the shrapnel in their bodies enduring the pain of old age. They are determined to visit and give honor to their buddies who died in battle.
Their mission they have to prepare for is unpredictable and nerve racking. That is enduring the unreasonable searches and seizure at the airport. They will be felt up and forced to stand up out of the wheelchairs to show they are not a threat to national security. They will be humiliated because they have to endure a cavity search because the bits of shrapnel from battle will set off the metal detector. They will be groped and have their genitals squeezed looking for explosive in his urinary tract . I do not think captured soldiers in NAZI POW camps did not endure such humiliation from the guards. The TSA will give no special consideration to our veterans of the greatest generation.
The day they travel to France to honor their fallen in battle on the beaches of Normandy. It will be a sad day for them. The TSA will remind these old warriors that all those close near and dear to them died for nothing because what they fought to defeat has now come to America. It is our duty to make sure these men who survived that day on the beach did not fight for nothing and their buddies did not die in vain. The torch has been passed to us to see to it that freedom is preserved and we will win. They fought the battles for liberty paid in pain and blood. We must let them know before they pass away into the sunset of their life. We will carry on the fight for freedom in their honor starting with defeating the TSA.
