D-Day pictures

Huffington Post has an article showing pictures taken on D-Day and pictures taken in the same spot recently and superimposed them – to know people are going about their lives freely where someone sacrificed their life so we could be free from oppression, just wow!

Also, over at CNN, they posted an article about Jim “Pee Wee” Martin who participated in the original paratroop landing and arrived at this year’s service the same way: by parachute!

Click here for that article. He was one of a couple veterans who participated in a tandem jump.
