Re: World War II Memorial / D-Day 60th Anniversary
Well done, Norm !!!
I was in our "honeymoon suite" at Fort Sill, OK, that morning.
All of the church bells in Lawton were peeling so loud and for so long, that in my young dumbness, I actually thought that the war must have ended.
I didn't go over for another six months, ending up in the
Fifth Army, for the last two Italian campaigns.
Right at 500,000 men were lost in all theaters. I often wonder how any of us survived.
I wish that we could have participated in the D.C. rites, but Betty's health prevented us from even considering it.
Have a safe journey, my friend, and may God continue to bless us all.
Therein lies the answer as to how we survived.
I just read that out if some sixteen million, there are now four million WW II survivors..
Here's to the Last Man Standing, as well as to those who preceeded him.
