    I can't watch this without tears flooding my eyes.

    My father was in the Army Air Corp in the Aleutians, my uncle as a Marine, was at Iwo Jima.

    Those in D-day, paved the way for the defeat of Hitler and Germany.

    May they all rest in Peace.

    America, Britian, Canada and many other countries payed a heavy price to free the world of evil.

    D-Day and the Battle of Normandy

    History

    On June 6 1944, known as D-Day, Allied troops stormed German defences on the beaches of Normandy (France) to open the way to Germany from the West. The task was formidable. The Germans had turned the coastline into a continuous fortress of guns, pillboxes, razor wire, mines and beach obstacles. Canadians were among the first into action and against terrible odds fought their way into Normandy from the Juno Beach landing area. The fighting continued throughout the summer of 1944. The living conditions were terrible and the enemy was ruthless. Even so, the troops pushed forward through northern France and then into Belgium and Holland, liberating people who had suffered four hard years of Nazi occupation.
    Success on D-Day and in the battles that followed came at a price: there are more than 5,400 Canadian graves in Normandy. But their sacrifice was not in vain. The victories won there paved the way to victory on May 8, 1945.

    Canada was very much involved and gave up lives, assets, and assisted to set the world free of that evil.

    They were very important allies in that period and other conflicts in US history.

    my dad was in the SeeBees during the war and was stationed at Pearl Harbor after the attack. To this day he does not talk about it.

    the older I get the harder it is to watch movies like 'Saving Private Ryan." It makes me wonder if I could of done what these men did.

    oldngray nowhere special

    My dad was too young for WW2 (he was in Korea and Vietnam though). I had a lot of great uncles and 2nd cousins who fought in WW2 but none were at Normandy. As far as I know they were mostly in Italy and Pacific. In Germany after the invasion. The soldiers on that beach deserve any beer they want. I would offer a better beer than a Bud but they wouldn't want one of our new fancy beers. Those oldtimers drank just the basic old brands so that was what they always had a taste for.
