D-Day 64 Years Ago Today

 64 years ago this morning American boys landed on the Normandy coast to start their fight to free Europe from the grip of tyranny. An old family friend Art Barton always said that the proudest day of his life was D-Day, he flew two missions in support of the landings and was shot-up during the second one.

 Publia of the Wilmette blog put up a great D-Day post and Little Green Footballs has this post on Google, they are celebrating Spanish painter Diego Velasquez rather than freeing Europe. However this You Tube parody of today's media covering the landings in "D-Day: Crisis on Omaha" is absolutely fantastic, it just rings true.

Sorry, no idea. Leslie once left a comment to a post about her father Art a few years ago but I haven't seen her since a Christmas party last December.
