I saw a picture of this in the newspaper this morning. I found it quietly beautiful, and very contemplative, powerful and moving. I hope you don't mind, I just thought I'd share this.

Cheers, and with much respect to the veterans and the memories of those who didn't get off the beach,

It is different I'll say that. It was all that was in today's local paper about D-Day…

An interesting idea, I liked it.

I found it insulting, especially that he included the Russians, who were not present to my knowledge, but left the British out. I might point out the Germans were busy trying to destroy the other helmets. Who pays these guys to have these "artistic" concepts?

I do not think it insulting that he used Russian, or for that matter German helmets Shaggy. I think it was De Gaulle who said that war was a series of disasters that ended in victory.

Just because it's on Omaha beach shouldn't mean that the dead of ALL nations aren't remembered.
