Default Tribute to a WWII Vet

This is about a 10 minute video by Sam Elliot. No one can tell a story quite like him.

Thumbs down

Just watched a movie this morning Sam Elliott co-starred in. He was perfect for that story. What a horrible mass slaughter of those who beached there. The United States chose US Army general Dwight D Eisenhower to lead the invasion. The Allied ground forces commander was British General Bernard Montgomery. Together the two planned an attack by the code name Operation Overlord. That battle cost 29,000 American lives.
