On June, 6, 1944, Allied forces landed on a swath of beaches in Nazi-occupied France in World War IIs most ambitious operation. The invasion and ensuing battle for Normandy helped change the course of the war. This year marks the 70th anniversary.

  1. Hard to believe so many of the pics we have for that day are really showing us the guys who were headed straight to their deaths..it is unbelievably sad, to me.

    1. Yes. When I was young, when I look at a picture like that, of someone who was moments away from being dead, that used to freak me out so much. I mean just like a physical reaction. It’s odd, it doesn’t do that anymore. I don’t know, but I think that’s an indication of being desensitized. I really don’t know but I don’t get that really really strange physical reaction that I used to get.
