Thinking Of The Allied Soldiers

  
who on this day 75 years ago landed on the beaches of Normandy.


Watching TV and seeing the old men who traveled to Normandy to remember this day and the lives that were lost has touched my heart. WWII would have had a different outcome had it not been for these men. My life may have been so completely different also. 


Thank You

  1. I just watched the ceremony and seeing those veterans who have come back for the last time left me with a lump in my throat. True heroes.

  3. I have watched the ceremonies and I am so proud and so thankful of those men who risked their lives for fighting against the evil. I can't imagine how terrible our lives would be without their extreme sacrifice. Our freedom comes at such a very high price. Also I remember the terrible pain their families have had to endure. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    Hugs, Julia

  8. Well said. And so true that all of our lives might have been very different than they are currently had the outcome of the war been different.

  10. I think we'd all be living different lives. We should never forget and always be thankful. God Bless them all.

  11. my dad was one of them. it's unimaginable how any of them ever survived that.
    and he lived to be 45. I watch it always and am always moved to tears.

  12. My dad was one of many British soldiers my Belgium grandmother hid from the Germans during the war. That was how my parents met. They married in Nov. 1945. I have a sister born in Belgium and one born in England and in 1950 they immigrated to the US. I'm their US child. So proud of my parents and all they did to combat communism. Also, at that time, my grandmother was in her 60's and was put in prison for wrking with the Belgium underground. She was a very brave woman. PattyMc McDonald

  13. Hi Inger - Europe would have been very different if things had gone the other way ... I've only in recent years come to learn more about WW1 and WW2 ... because I simply didn't want to know about horror and the awfulness of the wars. It was never discussed at home - both my parents had fairly challenging (understatement) times. Thanks for this.

    Love the gorse ... memories of Cornwall - Hilary
