D Day



At about this time of the morning 60 years ago today the allied forces started their land invasion of Nazi occupied France.

My grandmother says that my grandfather was the first American soldier on foreign soil in world war two, when he got off the boat in the UK to start training his men. and her second husband was with the Central Command when they librated Dachau.


Anyone who hasn't already seen them, check out "the longest day", and "band of brothers".

Which one was your grandfather?
In any case it's amazing that your family played such an important part D Day.

My grandfather fought in WWII and he always talks of D Day. He lost all his friends. He was the only one who survived the explosion in his tank. This hit close to home.
