Off the Record

Greta: Remembering some very brave men on D-Day

By Greta Van Susteren

Let's all go "Off the Record." There is a lot going on right now, especially in politics. But I thought we should all just take a minute, take a deep breath, and remember some very brave men who, 72 years ago today on D-Day, stormed the beaches on western France. 

The one who described that day best was President Ronald Reagan. Here's the former president, 32 years ago on the 40th anniversary of D-Day:

RONALD REAGAN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: Behind me is a memorial that symbolizes the Ranger daggers that were thrust into the top of these cliffs. And before me are the men who put them there. These are the boys of Pointe du Hoc. These are the men who took the cliffs. These are the champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war.

Now, if you are related to one of those heroes, I'm jealous because I would have love to know any one of them. They saved the world. We're going to be forever grateful to them. 

That is my "Off the Record" comment tonight.
