This year is the 75th Anniversary of WW2 D Day we thought now would be a good time to share with you again Kevin Costner’s speech to the British Army. We never tire of sharing this and even if you have heard it before, its always worth another listen. It’s very emotional and pretty much sums up how we all feel about our Armed Forces.
