Normandy Seventy Five Years On

Anniversaries are strange things. Especially when this is near the point of leaving living memory. Of the world leaders remembering the day, only Queen Elizabeth II is a veteran of that war. Unlike our president, and many leaders she served in uniform. Most vets of that war are in their nineties, and precious few remain. In five years we may have lost all of them. Normandy is about to enter fully the realm of history, where all we know about it is what is written in history books, left in newspapers and newsreels and in the old, fading photos that we all know.
