Today marks the 68th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of Hitler's Atlantic wall at Normandy. George Kerchner, an Army Ranger honored for bravery in leading his troops over cliffs to seize German big guns passed away earlier this year at age 93.

“Second Lieutenant Kerchner and 15 members of his organization were surrounded and cut off from the main body for two and one half days,” the citation said. “He tenaciously and courageously held his position until relieved and was a constant inspiration to his troops.” 

Those words; tenacity, courage, and inspiration can and should still be used in remembrance of this day.
