61 Years Ago Today

On June 6, 1944, 156,000 Allied troops (including 14,000 Canadians) landed on the beaches of Normandy and started an 11-month campaign to take Europe back from the Axis. Three years ago on this day I walked the length of Juno Beach and took this photo. You can’t see it in this thumbnail version, but Canadian flags still fly.
