D-Day Blog Post Placeholder

Huh.  I usually have something new and interesting to say about this day, 1944.  Been a little distracted and I am away from home right now trying to have fun.

I saw bits of a reaction video to Saving Private Ryan not long ago.  Some Millennial, first time watching.  "I need to learn more about history, I don't even know where this cemetary might be." At the beginning and the end of the movie.  

No worries, you can see it from space!

See it?

How bout now?  It's easy with the labels.  But if you don't know where Normandy is and you just followed the North France coastline you'd see this little bit of US territory overseas.

You can almost make out the stones.

You definitely can here.

I still remember the view of Omaha beach from that cemetery, 30 years ago.
