And would have been my grandmother's 99th birthday.
Learned quite a bit on various television D-Day retrospectives. I always wonder if I had been 16-25 years old in the 1940s what I would have been able/willing to do. Glad for what those people who WERE there did.
My local newspaper had a suprisingly large amount devoted to the 70th anniversary, there were several stories about local's involvement in the invasion.
Like BCJ I wonder about what would happen if that were to happen today.
