75th Anniversary of D Day - 6 JUNE 2019

How do we even begin to say thank you to the men and women who made D Day possible.  We shall, and will, not ever forget.  The sacrifices were unimaginable.  I thank them for my safety and for my freedom.  Their bravery and actions made my life possible.

Thank you seems so inadequate.

In the first photo, my mother, in WW11, drove a bus. Born in 1919, she was 20 when WW11 began and 26 when it ended.

My father, in the second photo (middle) served as a water tank driver in North Africa.  Born in 1908, he was 31 when WW11 started and 37 when it ended.

Although neither one of them were directly involved in D Day, they, like many others, served so that we may live.

Bravo to the D Day heroes:


  1. Their spiritual descendants are beginning to rise up.

  2. I saw a photo the other day of a landing craft loaded with American soldiers ready to storm the beach. They were all impossibly young. And brave.

    If they could have seen what America has become, I wonder if they would even bother. Perhaps they'd take their rifles home and fight a closer battle.

    I'm pretty sure they didn't die for this cesspool of special interests and corruption.

  3. Thank you for this post Fay. June 6 is always a sobering day.
