My Grandpa John Woodall could hardly speak of this war that the United States entered into after the attack on Pearl Harbor! Let us never forget the sacrifices, the bravery and the honor of those who served after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Never forget the lives lost during the attack and the call of action that was declared that those men did not die in vain. God Bless our brave soldiers!
****Eisenhower, commander of allied troops in Europe, delivered this message to allied forces just before they embarked on the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944:
“Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you.”****
