    They had some articles in the local paper today about people with local connection who were involved with the operation.

    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.

    I know today isn't Memorial Day, but it's another memorable day, now the 73rd anniversary of Pearl Harbor. The Bing search engine main page today has an interesting photo point of view of the actual memorial.

    ... but today is. Think of all those whose lives let us do what we do now.
