TOPIC: D-Day 75

D-Day 75 06 Jun 2019 06:56 #1

I can remember as a child thinking "wow, it as 20 years ago, that's a long time."

Also remember the 40 year mark, I took the local paper back then and I think it fell on a sunday. I opened the paper and looked all through it, not a word about it till i got to the funny papers. There was Snoopy

God bless Charles Schulz and Snoopy.

I called the paper on Monday, got the editor, asked he what he thought about the only mentioned of D-Day being in the funnys. He's reply was we only publish what comes down from the wire. I canceled the paper right then.

I'm glad DDay75 is being remembered as it should.

Words like bravery, courage, honor and sacrifice barely describe what went on that day.

I dream of a world where a chicken can cross the road without having its motives questioned.

While I don't recall the 20 year anniversary, I do remember the 30th. :oldguy

In 2004 I had the honour and privilege of being selected as 1 of 10 escorts for 40 D-Day veterans that my Squadron flew from our base in England to a small airfield outside of Cherbourb. Form there we visited several sites around Normandy. Spending the day with these brave men getting to know them and hear their stories fist hand was one of my most deeply moving and humbling experiences of my military career and of my entire life.
