It was seventy five years ago this very day – That the proud Allied Forces were able to say – The enemy was defeated, the war at an end – We hugged all our loved ones, our family, our friends…

Each year we remember, we never forget – All the lives that were lost when the sun finally set – Now we rejoice in the freedom they gave – And are thankful for all the futures they saved.
