And thanks to all veterans and all Igglephans vets!

Cannot even begin to imagine what those guys were thinking on that ride to the beach in those Higgins boats.

My father in law jumped into that shit (he was 92nd Airborne), and I once had a brief discussion with him about how he felt going in. He said that after so much training and so many simulation runs, they were mentally primed and ready to the point where there was absolutely no questioning anything. They just wanted to go.
