Remembering Operation Overlord D-Day today: 6 June 1944.



I visited Normandy with my dad in 1996 – he was just 19 when he landed on D+6, he remembered all the wreckage and the bodies being processed.




His unit – 30th Division – moved towards St-Lô, Normandy to capture the city. SGT John Torok was an infantryman in the 119th Regiment, 30th Infantry Division.

Wonderful tribute. At least this year, locally and on the
news there is mention and many memorial ceremonies. I had
three family members who were there that day. All now long
passed away. May future generations always be taught the
sacrifice,courage and how that generation made us and most of the
world free.

A different generation, one that should be remembered and honoured. Our freedom depended on men (and women) like him.

Last week at our hometown Memorial Service, we did not have one WW2 veteran in attendance. And some of my dear Korean Vets who used to participate every year, was just able to sit and watch. Our Color Guard SGT said he almost wasn't able to be there this year. He and I are both Vietnam Vets. He plans on me being his replacement, and I don't think that will work too long. I remember, and it was a privilege, each veteran's day we younger veterans would go and take a limburger/onion/on rye sandwich and 2 beers,and visit with the WW1 Vets. Now I am trying to work with younger vets to take over. Soon I won't be able to carry on our traditions of honor, any more. It's sad to know and remember all my fellow Veteran's who are gone and have past. Our freedoms are from all our Veteran's, but what the WW2 vets had to use for equipment and weapons, I don't think I could have made it. They were awesome and they were tough!
