D-Day veterans, 2019
See the men's names below COMMENTS. Presumably these men were 18-25 years old in 1944, and about 90 to 100 now. They may not be at the celebration next year. .

We owe our entire culture and comforts of life to these brave people. Some of our age group were equally as brave in Vietnam. Some of us were in the military and we stood up when our country needed us.

Such a touching photo of four brave Veterans. My grandfather and father both served in World War II. My nephew, Major Clarke Powers Groefsema, is now working at the Pentagon representing the military after deploying several times to the Mideast. Clarke flies the C130's. I salute all of our military, past and present, and thank them for their ever-present Service to the U.S.A.
