Thank you to all the Allied forces, both military and civilian, of the Greatest Generation, who helped to make D-Day a success in defeating the Axis powers in Europe.

Semper Fi.

A shame these sacrifices are not appreciated - in many cases, unknown, by the present generation.

We're here because of the ultimate sacrifice of so many.

R.I.P.

To one and all: I am surprised that some nut case has not come forward and said this should not be posted. If such a person does say something like that he if caught should be hung upside on a giant ant hill for the ants to have a good meal
I served during the Korean Conflict, but I was in Germany working on heavy equipment.
It is sad that we have to have this kind of world, and now they are coming to this country and doing there dasterdley(spelling) deed here. If you don't love the USA pack your sorry as* and leave
Thanks and that is myHO.

We visited that cemetery a year ago while on a tour of Normandy. It is a very moving experience specially at 5PM when they play Taps and lower the flags.
I didn't know until that day that there is also a German cemetery in Normandy.

This place was sad as well. Some of my distant relatives may be buried here.

A few years back I stood on the beaches at Normandy and looking up at the cliffs and all that German firepower all I could think was my God, surely there must have been a better way. My hat is off to all WW II veterans for the sacrifices they made so we could live our lives today.
