Handsome man Pat.

78228 Here is a picture of my dad. He was in France and eventually was in Germany -- which is where he was born. It was hard for him in some ways fighting against his birth country. He even came across a cousin of his who was a prisoner. They used my dad as a translator sometimes.

They are gone, but not forgotten. I was at Normandy Beach one year ago today. We went because we knew this year would be impossible to see anything. It is overwhelming to see.

I can well imagine that it is quite overwhelming to be there. I get very emotional when I go to the military cemetery here where my mom and dad are and the one where my father-in-law and mother-in-law are. It's so powerful to see all those rows of headstones knowing they all served our country. I can imagine that being there in Normandy where those brave souls died would multiply the emotions tremendously.
