Remembrance? No, our valiant years are being erased

Nov 10, 2019 by

What The Heroic Men Of D-Day Faced Down To Secure The West’s Freedoms

Jun 6, 2019 by

by Joshua Lawson, The Federalist: On November 10, 1942, Winston Churchill remarked that the Allied victory at the Second Battle of El Alamein was “the end of the beginning.” It was a start; the first major win against the European Axis powers in more than a year.
