2. My dad came in the 2nd wave.

He spoke little about it, except to say when he had gotten a bit inland he found and stole a German jeep but had to remove bodies. I break down trying to watch film clips and movies portraying that fateful day.

The D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia is a most moving sight.


Yes, I cried.
