At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Quite an accomplishment. It had a hard time getting off and running even after the beachhead. It was a great accomplishment, but at a high cost. All those who participated deserve our remembrance.
Thanks for the reminder.
I had an uncle who was there, got off the beaches and got wounded stepping over a booby trapped body. They fixed him up and sent him back in.
In a time of political uncertainty, where extreme views from all factions are emerging and people are arguing among themselves it is good to remember to whom we owe the freedom from tyranny we have now. It is a reminder to consider who you vote for and why, and the cost these people paid so that we could live as free people.
If you consider your country not to be in a good place at the moment think how much worst it would have been if the world had been dominated (if not ruled) by the Nazis and Fascists. It is thanks to the sacrifices made that we have a world that while not perfect is a hell of lot better than it could have been.
A Look Back in Incredible Photos: D-Day, June 6, 1944
I especially liked the then and now photos. Clever.
My Mom said my her cousin was there. Bravest men!
Thanks for the link. I love it.
That link was very interesting!
D-Day always make me think of my Mum. She grew up in Southampton, but was stationed in northern England on a barrage balloon team. She always lamented the thousands of GIs that were staging in her home town, and she didn't get to meet a one! 123
