Default June 6, 1944

On this day in 1944 a lot of YOUNG men died on the beaches and hedge rows of Normandy France.
We have a lot of problems in America but I love it here, those young men sacrificed everything to make sure we can be who we are.
NEVER Forget..........

Sorry I thought I was posting this in the Warbirds forum. Maybe the mods can move it.

When you say a lot, it was a lot; I think about 10,000 without doing research. That number sticks in my mind because it is SO significant.

That is about right.
I am reading "D-Day with the Screaming Eagles" and it amazing that they were even able to get a toehold in Normandy.
Some of the airborne sticks were dropped as much as 12 MILES away from their intended drop zone.
Most of the D-Day objectives were never achieved but there was just enough to get the job done.

A now deceased friend of mine was in the 82nd Airborne and went in via the glider assault. He survived, but many in his unit did not.
