Many men came here as soldiers
Many men will pass this way
Many men will count the hours
As they live the longest day

Many men are tired and weary
Many men are here to stay
Many men won't see the sunset
When it ends the longest day

The longest day the longest day
This will be the longest day
Filled with hopes and filled with fears
Filled with blood and sweat and tears

Many men the mighty thousands
Many men to victory
Marching on right into battle
In the longest day in history

This is how a real president commemorates the valiant men that accomplished that great deed.

Would we be up to the task today? I have no doubt our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines are, but what about our politicians?

With our current crop of politicians it would have been Obama returning from Munich instead of Chamberlain declairing peace in our time.
