Makes me want to go watch Band of Brothers once again.

Both by grandfather and great uncle were in the RAF, the great uncle having a bullet graze his skull as he was being shot down. Both lived to have some pretty great stories.

My Mother served in WWII in the Pacific Theatre as a WAC, before that, she helped build B-24's. Did not have any relatives in D-Day, but it was always a topic of discussion in my family.

Sorry if this is a bit late. I try and keep out of trouble, so I don't go into this sub that much.

Prospect
My Grandpa fought in Okinawa and the Pacific, he had some crazy tales.

Great pic of the event, takes some serious stones to storm those beaches :salut::salut::salut::salut::salut:
