D-Day 6th June 1944

Post: # 204944Unread post Twilight turtle »



No words really... except thank you, you are not forgotten or ever will be.
I remember the 50 year one and still have a supplement that came with the newspaper we used to have.
The 1994 supplement looks like it was printed in the 1940s. We still have it.

Thank you very much for posting those, I was about to do the same with the one up top.
There is a 104 year old man there today telling why it's important people remember, and what it was all for.
Most have forgotten why.

The United States has kept the world from being controlled by extreme tyranny for centuries. Can the United States survive the enemy within ? ( Obamanation, both bushes and Dementia Joe ) The USA has to destroyed for tyranny to flourish unopposed.

Frosty... that first video and the eerie silence but the wind...
Wow, 104... I wonder how many are left now.
I remember a man about 20 years back, he looked in his 70's and used to stand at the same bus stop in the morning on my way to work...he said he was a POW and learned to ski in Germany. He used to work up in the mountains or hills and said they would ski back down at day's end.

Gary, I hope it does survive.
USA always seemed like the guardian for the world.
But what a hefty burden for them...

About 119,000 American vets are left, maybe a little more.
Some 30 a day are dying though from what I remember from a report.
About 70,000 Brits left, I just read.
About 8,000 Canadians.
