    Default D Day

    Seventy-four years ago this week, 132,000 soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy, France in the greatest amphibious and air invasion ever attempted in wartime. June 6, 1944 stands out in our collective memory as a day of enormous personal heroism and sacrifice, and it will always be a hallowed date for Americans as well as for the French people, for whom D-Day marked the start of their liberation from Nazi tyranny.

    I hope they still teach our American children, not much on the news.

    They fought hard and with dedication, on both sides.

    Default D-DAY 74th. CELEBRATIONS I JUST GOT BACK

    I just returned from the D-DAY Celebrations. I will post some picts. and stories later this week. The French in the Normandy area have not forgotten, even the young ones, when they found out we were Americans the reply was "THANK YOU FOR OUR LIBERATION". BILL
