66th Anniversary of D-Day

These links came to me recently. They are to a Denver Post “article” which included a number of WWII photos. There are a lot of pictures, so you may want to view them when you have a fair bit of time.

Some of the photos are pretty graphic. All are vintage photos.


This first link is to a tribute upon the 65th anniversary (last year) of D-day.

This link is to photos from the Pacific theatre.

This link is to a series of photos related to the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Joe Rosenthal was the photographer. As the story relates, a photo taking something like 1/400th of a second to take went on to consume his life for years to come. This link also has a lot of vintage WWII photos.

May God bless those who serve, whether it be in the military, or in local police, fire, and other emergency services. May He also comfort the families of those lost in service.
