6th June 1944

Not everybody knows, but today is 76th anniversary of Normandy landings. I'm writing this, because I think it's our duty to keep memory about mens who died that day - over 3000 of them in single day, many more wounded and crippled for the rest of their lifes. They gave their lives, health and sanity, so today we can live relatively free. It was beginning of the Operation Overlord, which at the end resulted taking a Caen. Fell free to leave your thoughts or pictures of reconstructions - just be respectful. Maybe it's not the longest memorial, but in my opinion words doesn't matter here - not letting people to forgive what happened 76 years ago is the goal.
