They were secret code words used over open radio during WWII the day before the Normandy D-Day raid... the radio was heard by the Nazi's, but only the allied forces and the French Resistance knew the coded meaning.
The first phrase used was "Molasses tomorrow will bring forth cognac" followed by "John has a long mustache".
I think they both were used in the movie "The Longest Day"!
They were also used in the 1984 version of "Red Dawn".

Ahhh yes... what was that? A chair standing against a wall or something like that?
The chair is against the wall.
John has a long mustache.

That's it... I knew it was something to do with a chair standing against a wall but forgot the actual phrase.
I had the movie on VHS and watched it quite a few times until the tape eventually failed.
Biden mentioned Normandy on Memorial Day, but not on the anniversary of D-Day. This is not a political post but a comparison. Bush, Obama and Trump all remembered the day in their speeches. Did her forget or did he not care?
Democratic Party President Roosevelt not only thought of the military but prayed for them on the actual D - Day. Would a president today pray? They would have to remember it first.
I think the article was correct... it was purposefully omitted/ignored... and it is very reprehensible as Commander In Chief!
He reads what's up on his teleprompter. So the script writer is partially to blame. But then again, if he were a true politician, he should have known to give speeches on commemorative days... especially D-Day, so he cannot be held irresponsible either.
As for other political planners... hmmmm... many of the higher ups in the White House also should have been called out. You cannot call this just Biden's mistake... his staff are their 24/7 to inform him, advise him and assist him however possible.
It's terrible that it was omitted this year... unforgivable!
