“Our flag means all that our fathers meant in the Revolutionary War. It means all that the Declaration of Independence meant. It means justice. It means liberty. It means happiness…. Every color means liberty. Every thread means liberty. Every star and stripe means liberty.”
– Henry Ward Beecher
D-Day, June 6th 1944. More than 160,000 allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy France to fight against the Nazi’s of Germany. Many men lost their lives this day fighting for freedom. This was the largest amphibious assault led to this day. We honor and remember the greatest sacrifice that was made for our freedom. Allied forces fought bravely and ferociously to establish a foothold through the fighting. June 6th, 1944 was the beginning of the end of a war.
“Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well-trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely…I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”
– General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander

Masks are Required for Military
Well as of today its official. Masks are required to be worn if we can not social distance. Here at the school house it’s a little difficult because there are hundreds of military personnel all around us. Today they gave us temporary masks and have told us to make our own. So…my creativeness will have to come out when I try and figure out how to make a mask from a shirt. I do have the Navadmin that shows what entails a mask. I also found a helpful video and some guidelines on how to make one. Stay safe everyone! Remember to social distance and keep yourself and your loved ones safe and healthy!
