By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jun 06, 2014

It’s 70 years since D-Day, and it’s 30 years (believe it or not) since President Ronald Reagan delivered his memorable speech in Normandy about “The Boys of Pointe du Hoc.” If you’ve never seen it—or haven’t seen it recently—it’s well worth a few minutes, as a reminder of what American soldiers sacrificed, and why. Reagan at his very best.
