Remembering D-Day

Today marks the 61st anniversary of the release of the greatest expeditionary force known to man. Last year's speech by President Bush was lost in the wake of the passing of Ronald Reagan, and the 50th anniversary speech by President Clinton was eminently forgettable. That leaves President Reagan's 40th anniversary speech at Pointe du Hoc as the best commemorative D-Day address by a US president in my memory. It's worth reviewing.
