D-Day was JUNE 6, 1944

Posted June 6th, 2011 by Joe Messina Joe Messina in Historical

D-Day was JUNE 6, 1944. 156,000 troops landed on the
Normandy coast of France in the largest invasion force in history.
Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight Eisenhower issued the order:
"You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade...
The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you...
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained,
well equipped and battle-hardened.
He will fight savagely...
Let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this
great and noble undertaking."
President Franklin Roosevelt stated JUNE 6, 1944:
"My fellow Americans: Last night, when I spoke with you about
the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States
and our allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation...
I ask you to join with me in prayer:
Almighty God, Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a
mighty endeavor,  a struggle to preserve our Republic,
our Religion, and our Civilization...  They will need Thy blessings...
Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them,
Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom."
FDR concluded:
"Help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith to Thee."

    @Cash, we've always had soldiers of different religions. But the nation once directed its collective faith toward the Jewish and Christian God of the Bible, with tolerance for those who chose to believe otherwise. No one *made* anyone become Christian (that's the 1st Amendment), but our country was, in my lifetime, overwhelmingly Christian and the government recognized that. Not just government, but pretty much the whole scope of community was supportive of the Bible. I don't know how old you are, but I recall Jimmy Dodd on the Mickey Mouse Club teaching from Proverbs. On commercial television. Governmental bodies officially opened with prayer to the God of the Bible. It was just who we are as a people. Sadly (and tragically in my mind) that is no longer the case. We have lost sight that, yes, one faith is better than others.

    @ Rick: " Not likely we'll hear that again ..." Yeah, probably not, considering we have soldiers who are affiliated with many different religions. Why does this seem to be a problem for you, Rick? Is one religion better than all the others?

    I see the Lord's hand throughout this war. There were many opportunities for the war to be lost, had certain "minor" things changed in either theater. I saw a video of Roosevelt & Churchill's meeting aboard what was probably the USS Augusta. in August of 1941. As they were preparing for departure, the entire combined ships' companies sang Onward Christian Soldiers. Not likely we'll hear that again during time of war. And I fear that the Lord may just withhold His grace and blessings from us since we care so little for Him today.
