My father arrived in England from the USA on this day in 1944. He and his buddies of course did not know about the invasion before hand, and it was a very busy day...the first day they used the new stars & bars emblems on the Army Air Corps planes. He was not in the invasion, but followed after to serve in France and Germany.
We all owe so much to the men who died that day, as well as those who served and survived the largest sea to land invasion in history.

My dad knew what they were to do the next day. So he celebrated his birthday like it would be his last.

We were at a graduation reception today. I commented on the date and no one even knew what I was talking about.
(It was in-laws and their in-laws)

About 15 years ago I was fortunate enough to be on the beach at Normandy and Calais. Quiet, wind-swept isolation, an area that many drive through now to take the Chunnel from France to England. I stared at those beaches for a very long time, knowing the amount of blood that was spilled and the number of young men who never returned home. Aside from some rusting battlements, it is eeire today in its peacefulness.
