Even me, the UberIgnoramus knows what happened this day 62 years ago.

D-Day.

S! to our vets.

I still think the bloodiest part of WWII were the battles fought on the Eastern front.

In terms of numbers and sheer barbarity, yes I guess so... but I'll not forget my Dad saying about the two guys either side of him - his best mates - who were shot dead by machine-gun fire as the LC ramp went down on Sword beach http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Dead's dead - and geography & statistics don't make a lot of difference to them.

HATS OFF TO ALL WHO SERVED!! AND MANY, MANY THANKS!!

We had a small ceremony here today at the LST325.
They awarded some very overdue medals to one local.
Floyd Whicker, B Company, 2nd Ranger Btn was wounded on Omaha beach. Today he received his Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart and several other medals.

Thanks to all the Yanks, Brits, Poles, French, and all the Allied Forces who landed in France that day to end a nightmare.

Sincere gratitude and respect to those, who chose to take part in this endeavour to free the greater parts of Europe from Nazi opression and a sinister future.

My condolences to everyone who lost a familiy member in this conflict.

RIP and S!

Son of a B!TCH! Thanks for the reminder. I can't believe I forgot today was the D Day anniversary. (Feel like serious ***hat now)

To the ever shrinking numbers of WW2 veterans that served in the freeing of man from tyrany and evil.... I thank you.

Your service and sacrifice has allowed me and countless millions to have hope for our own future, and our own dreams.

THANK YOU.

Mr. Cherbuy..... you are a hero in my book!!!!!
