Saving Private Ryan - D-Day Sequence

In case you aren't aware, Ken Burns' "The War" is airing this week on PBS. Watch it. It's incredible, awe inspiring, and emotionally sobering. I think Burns may have equalled his Civil War documentary, if he hasn't surpassed it. It's the most important thing you'll watch all year.

I've thought of something to compare The War against, and the prime candidate would have to be Spielberg's opening D-Day sequence at the beginning of Saving Private Ryan. So I found that scene on YouTube and figured I'd show it here. Enjoy, and be sure to spend some time with your grandparents.
