On this day 75 years ago, my Grandfather, at age 18, was driving a Naval Landing Craft Vehicle Personnel (LCVP) landing United States soldiers on the beaches of Normandy. He made many trips that day until he was finally wounded. He recovered and was then sent to the South Pacific Islands to continue the war until he returned home.
Thank you to all the soldiers who fought and died on that day, 75 years ago!
We live free because of your sacrifices!
