And afp the french press service reporting today on the immense support the president has received from d-day vets who were there in normandy with him jack guttman. He was an 18 year old soldier storming the omaha beach 75 years ago. He said of the president, if i could see him that'd be a thrill for me, because the man has done an awful lot to help our country. Fellow d-day, veteran george champa ...
praising the president saying quote: he's not a political person. He sees a problem and he fixes it. That'S what george s patton did he had the same temper as trump and he helped win the war over here, joining us tonight: retired four-star generalfox, business, chief, strategist, general jack, keen general good to have you with us and on this this 75th anniversary of d-day. I have often felt when i looked at the combat photography of the big red one, the 1st infantry division as they stormed the normandy beaches. I cannot imagine the courage that it took, and so many tens of thousands of americans and allied troops doing so to liberate europe. Your thoughts on this day, yeah something i totally agree with that i mean it was a day when we had people who came from every fabric of life in our country to travel to a place. Most of them have never been, and they were had acommon bond together from the kind of life that they all lived and yet what they did was fundamentally so uncommon and such an extraordinary act. They assaulted literally in the hell here louie as you were, describing and, and they came by parachute. They came by glider.

They came by landing craft supported by naval gunfire supported by fighters and bombers, and so many things on that day went wrong, but nonetheless they persevered that that tenacity that this adaptability that americans have is reflected in their soldiers as well and you're. Absolutely right. On that day, fear and death was a silent companion to our troops as they move forward and kept moving forward to strike the physicaldestruction of that of their buddies around them, and you got ta remember, except for a few if members of the 1st infantry division being Some of the exception most of them had never experienced artillery fire had never conducted an assault from an amphibious. They never attacked the beach. They literally were on the heavy machine-gun. Fire had never had any experience like that in their life, but can you imagine when they saw the scale of that operation early in the morning as they're loading, their landing craft and recognized that there were 5000 plus ships out there and tens of thousands of them And that they knew that they were going to be part of something that wastruly historic and and thank america and fox and others like yourself for honoring them. They deserve what they get, and i agree with you about the president. I thought that speech was absolutely one of his best, if not his best, and i loved the fact he spent so much time. Honoring our veterans, i'm salutely, giving them hugs talking with them and truly giving them the respect that they earned so mightily on that day, and we should thank everyone in this country serving in uniform for all. That is being done to this very moment by our servicemembers general jack keane. We thank you so much for being with us. We appreciate it.
