Memorial Day Photos Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Alan took these photos when he visited the beaches of Normandy a couple of years ago.  He backpacked through Europe and his love of history dictated that he visit this place of our fallen soldiers.  The first photo is the actual beach where our American soldiers landed. 

My dad served in the Korean War.  Alan's other Grandpa did as well, and Alan's dad retired from the Navy.  I learned the ways of the military well.  How about you?  Do you have special memories today?

Thanks for sharing these. PBS showed all the cemeteries in other countries that have our fallen heroes.

I just found your blog today. Love it. I had to post a comment here especially since my DH is military and my Gpa also served in the Korean War. Thanks for remembering, and TFS.
