Not easy for me to forget the anniversary of D-Day. One, because I enjoy history, and two, it's my youngest child's birthday.
As always, a big thank you to those men and women, from so many nations who did their part to make the invasion a turning point in history, from the Rosie The Riveters (my great grandma was one), to the men and woman of the Resistance in France, to the men who actually stepped on the beaches or behind the German lines.
They changed history; they set in motion the liberation of a continent, and they're owed an eternal debt.
I've never been to Normandy, but is it true that the French don't have the way to Normandy, and that historical area, marked very well. A friend of mine at work told me that, and I find that incredible.
