    Would be nice to see a Union Jack as well, and a Maple Leaf. They were there too, in fact if they weren't, the US would never have been able to do it

    Thank you for putting together a most fitting and touching tribute to one of the most important and significant events in modern history. Grandpa was a SeaBee in the Pacific and he said when word reached them of the invasion, a mighty cheer and a prayer went up. Take care and God Bless from Florida.

    Harry Keel says:

    May GOD bless those who died for us and the ones they liberated.

    부럽다 저런 군인 저런 국민이 있어서
    ㅠ 울나라는 저런 군인은 있는데 이제는 저런 국민이 없다
    이제는 총칼들고 내조국 우리국민을 위해 피와땀을 흘리기 싫다
    진심이다
    94군번이….

    I have no idea why, when I see TAPS being played in a cemetery, my cheeks get wet.

    D-Day stripes and the P-47 checkerboard on the F-15s was a nice touch. 🙂
