WWII - The Battle of the Bulge

On December 16, 1944 an infamous battle was fought in Belgim. The Battle of the Bulge as it was known. Remembering this terrible time in the history of Europe and of the American Armed Forces, brings to mind the ultimate sacrifice of so many of the young of America and Allied Forces.
The battle was fought on fields of snow and during very cold conditions. There was the terror of death, of the enemy, of the weather. Fear of many types was rampant. Yet, these young men fought for the freedom of the World.
Pause and remember them. Remember, too, the young men and women who today are fighting for freedom. And fighting against the terrors of this day.
