June 6, 1944........

The Invasion of Normandy and the beginning of the Liberation of Europe.

As a kid 45-50 years ago, I knew of a lot of men who had been a part of the Invasion and follow on battles across Europe.

Not to many of them left and getting fewer everyday
I suppose.

US Troops heading into the beach.

I think these are New Zealand Troops here.

Lots and lots of young men gave it up on those beaches that morning.

Gotta run. Work day for me.
