Very nice Alan. We love seeing old pictures, thank you for sharing. Those young men had no idea the hell that awaited them.

Cool pics.

 

My cousin Dave was 101st and jumped on D-Day. In fact, he did all three jumps in WWII.

WAY cool pics !

 

What did Churchill say? Something like "Never before in the History of human conflict have so many owed their lives and freedom to so few,"

 

What the USA and a couple of her allies were able to accomplish IS one of the greatest feats of Mankind.

 

Welcome, sir !
