Some 40 veterans spent June 6, 2008, in Bedford commemorating the 64th anniversay of the D-Day assault. There's not as many of these heroes left this year. Each year takes a few more of them away.
But their legacy lives on, way beyond their years. The freedoms they fought for, we now enjoy. The sacrifices they made we must always salute. The price that they paid we must never forget.
To each of them, and to all the military men who have served and are now serving, we give our thanks.
