    I was going to do this question when I got up in the morning, since it's still the 5th where I am, so I was happy to find this here.

    My original song choice was the Dire Straits version of the one you chose, but I think this one is nice, too. I am told that when you visit the Allied Memorial in Normandy in the evening, you sometimes hear it drifting on the ocean breeze. I know it's an American thing, but since, especially at Normandy, Americans lived with Brits and Canadians, and died with them, too, maybe they can share this song, as well.

    I am grateful for their sacrifices, and I think of them often.

    What a great song and a wonderful tribute. Thanks.

    MA: This is a video tribute to The Soldiers of World War II. Not a rock song but it has some great pictures of the soldiers and is set to classical music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUxfGkwuC3o

    I have so much more to say, my brother.

    Can you hear me?

    A fool is left to live as the brave ones fall.

    I swear if I were able,

    I would have done the same for you.

    You chose the one that i immediately thought of hun! :)

    The only one other one that i can think of is Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler, which although is thought of as being sort of a cheesy song, is pretty appropriate lyric wise.

    I am very grateful for what all of those men did. Thank you for asking this question!
