D-Day remembered

To all who serve and have served the cause of freedom so faithfully, I humbly tender my simple thank-you.

Today is June 6th, and we remember those brave men who stepped out on the beaches in France. Some barely took a few breaths before being hewn down by the nearly overwhelming enemy fire. Through providence, most were spared and able to accomplish the task at hand, though they witnessed the terrible price our US, Canadian and British men paid for the cause of freedom.
This past Memorial Day, Ol’ Myrt here attended the wreath-laying ceremony at the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. (See DearMYRTLE's "TRIBUTE for Memorial Day".) This photo was taken by professional photographer Duane Lempke. Ol' Myrt and MSF (my Skype friend) are standing just above the inscription for D-Day.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
Your friend in genealogy.
