June 6 is a day for two important happenings. On June 6, 1944 (73 years ago today) was D-Day, the Normandy Invasion of the Allies that led to the Victory over the Nazis in World War Two. Also, on June 6, 1937 , my dear Father was born. He is still alive today and is celebrating his 80th Birthday today! We don't have an opportunity to actually be with him and my Mom today due to distance and work schedules, etc. but we will be calling them later on today.

Wishing your wonderful father the happiest of 80th birthdays!!! My father-in-law made the Normandy landing from one of the many amphibious boats on that June 6th day. I remember he always had problems with his feet because they froze at some point in France.

I was too young to remember D-Day. As a matter of fact, I wasn't born until the following December.
