Steve,
You must not have been in Normandy last year- every village and one horse town was decked out with American, Canadian and British flags to commemorate the 60th anniversary. Even just speaking in English on the streets was enough to get you hugs from French grannies!
Cheers,
Pete

John,

Thank you for remembering! Many folks on your side of the pond seem
to have forgotten that lately - especially those on the eastern side
of the Channel.

Pete,

Thanks for mentioning the D-Day recognition last year. I wasn't there but
had relatives who did visit the beaches, and they said it was astonishing -
heartfelt memorials from both the generations that sacrificed and all the
subsequent generations that benefited from the Allied effort. The photos
and stories were deeply touching. Humanities's best when confronted with
the worst.

It is amazing the commitment, cooperation, shared sacrifice and heroic
efforts that come about from differing societies/people when confronted
with real threats, actual weapons of mass destruction and true malevolent
aggression.

-Marc

Pete,

No, I was not there - but I would have liked to see that.
