Seventy-five years have passed, but the heroism of the men who stormed the beaches of Normandy still resonates as strongly as it did that June Tuesday in 1944 when America awoke to the news.This will almost certainly be the last time our country will be able to commemorate such a milestone anniversary while the heroes who participated in the D-Day invasion are still here with us on Earth. Even the very youngest World War II veterans are now well into their 90s.The country and the world are blessed that more than 180 D-Day veterans were able to join President Trump and other world leaders in France. The living memory of what it means to fight and die “to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity” — as President Roosevelt put it when he spoke to the nation for the first time following the landings — is rapidly fading.That memory is not merely of a single, bloody day in 1944, or even of the Second World War more broadly. It is the living memory of a generation whose struggle forged the world we enjoy today. As Living Memory Fades, Our Words Keep D-Day’s Sacrifice Alive But the ranks of those who listened to those words live while the outcome of that struggle hung in the balance are rapidly dwindling.The National WWII Museum estimates that there are fewer than half a million American World War II veterans left, out of the more than 16 million who answered the call of duty three-quarters of a century ago. By the time of the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings, the museum projects that there will be fewer than 100,000.FOOTNOTE: The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail President Roosevelt defined that struggle for the GI Generation, calling on them to “conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies” and to “lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace[,] a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men.” TOWNHALLSean Spicer

From the recess, it was a different story, as Inter Allies dominated the early stages of the second half and in the 66 minute their hard work was positively rewarded as Ropapa Mensah benefited from a miscommunication between Philip Boampong and Tetteh Lugard to slot home the first goal after a long ball from Baba Mensah.The Phobians after the goal re-strategized as they started picking up the pieces and in the 83 minute mark Isaac Oduro beautifully curled in a 15 yard free-kick to level the scoring for the Phobians.Two minutes later Hearts of Oak nearly doubled their lead but Osei Kwame in post for Inter Allies saved the situation for the home side.However, when everybody taught the game was ending in a draw, Goeckel Ahottor who was introduced in the second half struck the winning goal from a 25 yards as Inter Allies held on to beat Hearts of Oak 2-1 which happens to be the first win for the Tema based club over the Phobians.FCPPL MATCHDAY 12 RESULTS Asante Kotoko 1-0 Liberty Professionals Scorer: Ahmed Toure Inter Allies 2-1 Hearts of OakScorers: Ropapa Mensah, Gockel Ahortor; Isaac Oduro Great Olympics 1-0 Wa All StarsScorer: Agbashie Dotse –Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmith
