Ken Consaul | 18 comments A thank you to the few remaining heroes who set foot on French soil this day 68 years ago.

Remeberance of my father who came ashore on D+6 as a forward observer providing ground support to the troops. Later he resumed his role as pilot of a P-47 Thunderbolt flying ground support and search and destroy missions in the ETO. Veteran of Battle of the Bulge and Remagen Bridge. Thanks dad and thanks to all the remaining valiant men who shined that day.

Indeed, thanks to all the surviving veterans!

I shall be thinking of my "Uncle Paul" (actually my grandmother's first cousin), a D-Day veteran, who died a few years ago.

Adam (adam_yamey) | 1 comments If you are ever visiting the county of Devon in the UK, it is worth seeing Slapton Sands where the D Day landings were rehearsed. See: http://www.southhams24.co.uk/slapton-... & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exercise...
