Video - God Bless the Military - Normandy invasion - D-Day German footage

Combat footage. Die Deutsche Wochenschau.6th June 1944, Normandy invasion from German perspective.As late as 13:35 the German 352nd division was reporting that the assault had been hurled back into the sea. From their vantage point at Pointe de la Percée overlooking the whole of the beach from the western end the German perception was that the assault had been stopped at the beach. An officer there noted that troops were seeking cover behind obstacles and counted ten tanks burning. However, as early as 07:35 the third battalion 726th Grenadier Regiment, defending Draw F-1 on Fox Green beach, was reporting that 100--200 American troops had penetrated its front, with enemy inside the wire at WN-62 and WN-61 under attack from the rear. Casualties amongst the defenders were mounting and at the same time that the 916th regiment, defending the centre of the 352nd zone, was reporting that the landings had been frustrated, it was also requesting reinforcement. The request could not be met because the situation elsewhere in Normandy was becoming more urgent for the defenders.

Why are you God Blessing the Military? Are you blessing the German military? Are you blessing both military s and war in general? What does this have to do with your conservatively themed blog?

God Bless the US Military, and the brave men that stormed the beaches of France. It is relevant to a conservative blog because conservatives support the men and women serving our military. Peace through strength

How do you support the men and women of the military?

I do my part hoopataka. I come from a long line of military service.

Why the evasion? It is a straightforward question. How do you support the men and women of the military? Let hear some substance behind the rhetoric.

Beacuse it is none of your concern. Suffice it to say, I have helped family serving in the military, in various ways. And I contribute to select organizations dedicated to supporting our troops.

I would be happy to discuss this further on our message board.

I am finding it hard to believe you have lifted a finger to support the men and women of the military. You probable fight paying your taxes to buy them sufficient body armor and medical services while claiming that the unproductive, destructive and destabilizing wars they are sent to are essential.

Of course you do. Anyway, like I said, I would be happy to discuss this further on our message board.
