Indeed.
I remember a lot, too...Our evenings were spent gathered around the radio listening to the news..We kids had to do home work during school, of course, but I recall the broadcasters names and voices still.

Normandy American Cemetery.

The cemetery is located on a bluff overlooking Omaha Beach (one of the landing beaches of the Normandy Invasion) and the English Channel. It covers 172 acres , and contains the remains of 9,387 American military dead, most of whom were killed during the invasion of Normandy and ensuing military operations in World War II. Included are graves of Army Air Corps crews shot down over France as early as 1942.

Only some of the soldiers who died overseas are buried in the overseas American military cemeteries. When it came time for a permanent burial, the next of kin eligible to make decisions were asked if they wanted their loved ones repatriated for permanent burial in the U.S., or interred at the closest overseas cemetery.

The names of 1,557 Americans who lost their lives in the Normandy campaign but could not be located and/or identified are inscribed on the walls of a semicircular garden at the east side of the memorial. This part consists of a semicircular colonnade with a loggia at each end containing maps and narratives of the military operations. At the center is a 22-foot bronze statue entitled The Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves. Facing west at the memorial, one sees in the foreground the reflecting pool, the mall with burial areas to either side and the circular chapel beyond. Behind the chapel are allegorical figures representing the United States and France. An orientation table overlooks the beach and depicts the landings at Normandy.

Good evening, Sand...((HUGS))...I am so glad it is Friday, finally!!

This last week, of 5 days, has been no easier than the previous week of only 4 days. Saturday already has multiple Mom errands, but at least I don’t have to get up to any alarm clock. d:o)

How’s the healing? Is Maddi helping your forehead heal?

I LOVE music production. I wish i did it for a living. But then, I would never get any sun.

That's the dilemma, isn't it? LOL

I burst through the Sally Port at 0550 this morning - hit the Office at 0700 after a short stop for breakfast.

I hope you're having a restful night!

Good to see you too.

I’ve been away from the Canteen too much, so need to know how your walker race against your wife went? ;)

I have a book event this weekend at the LaPlata ArtFest. Sunday, maybe pool for first time this year.
