Never Forget: D-Day, June 6, 1944!

Ever Forward

Dear Commons Community,

In 2019,  my wife and I visited France and had the privilege of visiting the American D-Day Memorial sites in Normandy – Utah Beach, Point du Hoc, Omaha Beach and the American Memorial Cemetery – where there are more than 9,000 American casualties buried.

Ever Forward is the bronze statue that sits at the entrance to Omaha Beach.  It shows an American soldier helping a wounded comrade.

The Memorial Cemetery is a place of serenity with its thousands of crosses.  At 5:00 pm every evening, taps are played to remember our honored dead (see video below).

Today, I especially remember my two uncles John and Anthony DeMichele, both of whom were in Normandy in World War II.
