Linus van Pelt:
See, from up here, the enemy could fire right down on the invaders. Look out there, over there, that's where the Allies had built an artificial port. Two weeks after D-Day, a violent storm took the whole thing apart.

This beautiful animated Peanuts Memorial Day Special is a must see for anyone who loves America. This is a sequel to the film Bon Voyage Charlie Brown and takes place right after the gang leaves France. The film is loaded with powerful WWII imagery and also talks about WWI which is also interesting. Linus's speech "In Flander's Fields" is extremely moving. Shultz was a WWII veteran and he delivers an excellent episode that everyone should see.
