These fine young men would be or are in their late eighties or nineties. God bless them all.

Thanks for these photos. Some so very hard to see thru the tears. May God bless America and can we seek, somehow, to avoid any more of these horrible wars.

The second photo is the most iconic, used by many authors writing articles or books concerning D-Day. The photo is of a U. S. Coast Guard LCVP from the Coast Guard attack transport SAMUEL B CHASE. I had the good fortune to speak with one of the boat coxswains from the CHASE a few years ago. They were truly “the greatest generation”, willing to sacrifice the most precious thing we all possess, one’s life, for a just cause. Thank you Martin for posting the photos and for this wonderful modeling site!
