Thumbs up Lest We Forget

With all the USA bashing going on here and other places I feel compelled to post a few pictures from my father's collection.

These were taken on and near Omaha Beach in 1944. 147th Engineer Combat Battalion, 6th Engineer Special Brigade.
Photographer is unknown, probably someone in his Company. This is just a small sample. I have over 100 of these. No copyright.

this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Re: Lest We Forget

Very interesting. Thank you for sharing. It may not happen in my lifetime, but I am hoping politics transcends the place we are in now where the United States is an evil empire...unless of course your preferred political party is running things...
