D Day

Today is the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Invasion, otherwise known as D Day.

I always had the ultimate respect for those there that day.  How would you like to be told that you were heading out on a mission, and there was a good chance you weren't coming back?

I've often wondered why the D Day anniversary isn't a bigger deal in the USA.  It's probably because it didn't happen on American soil.  I suspect this year will be the exception because it's the 75th anniversary.

I've also often wondered why more things aren't named after Dwight D. Eisenhower.  War hero.  Immensely popular president.

Most of the people involved with D Day have passed.  A few are still around to tell their stories, and I'll be listening to as many as I can.
