To honor the momentous event of 68 years ago, we post a memorable speech from 28 years ago:
From the speech:
“These are the boys of Pointe de Hoc. These are the men who took the cliffs. These are the champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war.”
From the article:
“Here you are, driving down the street as drunk as you can be and you have no idea the kind of damage that can put a family into,” she said.
