74 years ago today Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy to begin the liberation of Europe from Nazi occupation. Less than a year later Germany surrendered.

Several times today, when writing the date. I have caught myself starting to type 1944 on the keyboard for the year instead of 2018. == I feel most of you have seen the movie, The Longest Day.  If not, see it.  It is really good.  When they were advertising the movie in 1962, I believe, the minute ad on the radio just spent the whole time reading the stars.  Everyone was in it.  They did a great job on that. == I just can't imagine how the actual military felt changing the beach into the gun fire, WOW.  They are the true Heros.

This article will give you an idea how bad it was for the 116th Inf Regiment of the 29th Inf Division on Omaha Beach.

Many of the harshest horrors of WWII were on the eastern front but I cannot imagine it getting worse than this.

Maybe I missed it, but the news I watched today, didn't mention "D" day.

Other battles were more horrendous, but never on the size of this one.

We owe everything we have to our military. I wish it were possible to shake their hand and say thank you to every one. Even that wouldn't be enough.

This article on the First Wave at Omaha Beach is just outstanding.  I was just glued to it.  The details are almost like being there, without the mortars.  It made me understand just how hard this was WOW.  Read it if you 20 minutes to spare.
