What a tremendous, and costly undertaking for freedom it was.


Look for me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Tic Toc...or anywhere you may frequent, besides SimHq, on the Global Scam Net. Aka, the internet.
I am not there, never have been or ever will be, but the fruitless search may be more gratifying then the "content" you might otherwise be exposed to.

My deepest respects.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Respect. My grandfather lived through his landing on D-Day. I have his letter from Eisenhower framed. From speaking to him when he was alive I still don't know if he was happy he lived through it or not.

A generation I doubt we will see again.

I had no relatives involved in WW II but that doesn’t diminish at all the importance of the Normandy campaign to me.

RossUK, i understand. My father was in the Army Air Force, and he ended up on Okinawa, after the Marines secured it. As much as he knew how fascinated I was with WWII events, he would never talk about it. Neither did my 2 uncles. I did hear about 1 Uncle, who was a .50Cal gunner, about his mission attacking Germans holed up in a town in France. He gave me the 5 minute version. Done. Never wanted to talk about it again.
