D-Day, June 6, 1944

June 6, 2017 · in Photo Collections · 7 · 1.6K

I would call my dad every June 6, and ask him if he remembered what he was doing on that date years ago. Always got the same answer, "Hell yes I do, lucky to have lived through it." Pics are from a ringed book titled a pictorial biography of the United States 101st Airborne Division, compiled and arranged by the unit Public Relation Office, Auxerre, France, 1945. My brothers and sisters were quite lucky to have him as our father. Miss him every day of the week.
