D-Day + 2

Normandy American Cemetery
After a bicycle trip through Normandy in 2003,  I have always made a point to remember the sacrifice of those brave young men who gave the "last full measure" for their country.  Walking amongst these graves, one is struck by how many there are and how young they were. 

18-18-17-18-19-20-18-25-17-18.  

It goes on and on and on; over 9,000 in all, in just one cemetery.

The cemetery overlooks Omaha Beach where there were more than 6,500  US casualties on one day alone.

Never Forget.
