D-Day Anniversary: Visiting The Normandy Beaches Today - International Business Times
It is also this lady's anniversary at my work. Her husband is still alive and visits almost every day..Very cute old couple. I think he was deployed soon after their wedding.
Been there, done that. Everyone should go to Normandy and walk those beaches, and realize how much that generation did for us.
I should add, they got married on the actual day it happened 68 years ago.
Oh, for a regiment or two of paratroopers dropped behind Vierville and Colleville.
i was amazed at how little attention has been paid to this day......
it was perhaps the greatest day in the history of free men.....it determined the direction the world would take....it stopped the killing of innocent people for no more than their religion or race.
i dont think any of us can imagine the horror of that day....over 6 thousand americans killed in one day
