D-Day 70 years on

Hi everyone,

Today's 70th anniversary of D-Day, the allied landings on the Normandy coast, is remembered personally by an ever decreasing number of veterans who served that day. Earlier today, at the Normandy memorial in town, I met with a few of them, briefly. With flags flying at half staff, only a few words were exchanged, it was all that was needed... "Thank you, Sir" I said to each one. I then stepped back and bowed to each, before turning towards the memorial and the flagstaffs and saluting.

I took this photo as I left them...

We WILL remember them...

God bless,
