June 6, 1944
A young man from Charleston IL was on one of the landing craft boats that day
in the middle of the English Channel, thousands of miles from home anticipating the landing
on French soil.
his parents and I am sure my Grandmother (his sister) were wondering about him that day when they heard about the invasion.
So many did not come back.
How fortunate our family was that he did.
Luckily he was also able to document his days following.
He in later years did some interviews for books, newspapers etc.
He came home and got married in 1947
had twins in 1950
My how my life would be different if things would of had a different outcome
that day 70 years ago.
I am blessed to have his 2 daughters, my cousins in my life.
If you follow my blog you know the twins
So many lives were changed that day.
Sons, Husbands, Fathers, Uncles, Brothers,
Cousins and childhood friends sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
Take a moment to think about them, think about D Day.
Did it change your life in a way you never considered before?
Thank you Uncle Harold,
