More D Day 2019
75th Anniversary #DDay75 #Normandy
Remarkable new events, readings, song, and a parachute jump!
What is more remarkable is how many WW2 Veterans are trailblazers
in educating the younger ones, “I feel like a rock star,” and oral histories.
- BBC Specials, Broadcasts, BBC World News, Documentaries, Dramas
- National Geographic ATLAS of World War II. Original D Day maps, etc.
- BBC You Tube 15 yr old galley boy in 90s Jim R Sings his own
- “The Shores of Normandy.” A poet-sailor, folk singer.
- Queen Elizabeth salutes, not only the world leaders gathered at Portsmouth,
- but all the living, surviving veterans, who maybe thought they too would not
- see the 75th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944. With gratitude, you hear!
- 97-yr Brit parachutes to commemorate his first D. Day jump at Normandy and
- honor his fallen heroes. ‘No one…shooting at me this time.”
- Beaches of Normandy, and other cemeteries with D-Day tours, re-enactments.
- Any book by Stephen Ambrose and his D Day tour in progress in France.
- Most notably — the interviews with WWII vets, most in their 90s, still standing
- with the Queen of England, whose life and tributes most thorough and moving.
