d-day

 

What many may know of D-Day is through having seen Saving Private Ryan, which is an excellent film. Boomers, like myself, had parents and uncles who served in World War II. However, many who returned chose not to talk about what they had experienced.

I knew only that my father was a photographer on an airplane that day. His birthday happens to be June 6 and he told me that he had joked with his CO that he should get the day off.

His CO told him...Henry, you’re not going to want to miss this day.

 

What’s important for us all is to remember how we as a nation came together. And, how we worked with our Allies. We put aside any differences and did what was right for the good of the world.

 

 

 

It’s difficult at times but I do believe in the goodness of men and women. Keep that in your minds and hearts to honor those who have and continue to serve.

 

And one more thing...Happy Birthday, Dad.
