D-Day Anniversary Thu, 06/6/13 3:21 PM (permalink)
Today is the 69th anniversary of D-Day.
I mention this because it is also the anniversary of my Grandfather's first bombing mission in World War II.  He was lucky enough to fly a total of 30 missions and earn enough points to return home to the US.
His missions went from France to Belgium to Germany to Poland and back to Germany many times.  His plane was hit by Flak and anti aircraft rounds several times, crash landed twice on its return to England.
I thank all of the "Greatest Generation" for their service and their sacrifices.
