Today marks the 65th Anniversary of the invasion at Normandy Beaches in France by American, Canadian, and British troops, supported by Polish, Norwegian, and some Free France soldiers. Not many veterans of that battle, or other World War II battles, remain. Unlike World War I, this war has been remembered and commemorated hundreds of times.

So if you know a Vet, say thanks. Even if they weren't on the shores of Normandy-Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, or Sword-thank them anyway.

And if you ever get a chance to visit The National World War II Museum in New Orleans, I highly recommend it. It's a wonderful experience with enough stuff to amaze even the more knowledgeable historian.

Hi Isabel. My father in law was in WWII. He often talks to us about the war and teaches my children too about it. He loves to go too to the post so he can visit among those vets too. He's made many friends for life over the years that he went to war with. Thanks for sharing this and too remembering them from this time. Caffey

PS Can you put 'follow' gadget on your blog? I'd love to follow and know when you have a new post! Thanks! If not no problem!

Follow gadget? Um, sure. I'm sure I can figure it out lol.

Both my grandfathers fought in WWII. When the monumentin D.C. was open, my entire family took a bus trip down there to see my one grandfather's name.
