Jun 6 , 1944 70 years ago

74 years ago today June 6, 1944. My father landed at Omaha beach in Normandy. His unit was 105mm artillery battery. They started fire their guns off the LST in supporting fire for the troops on the beach. From there he would be many action. The most notable would the battle of the bulge. Where they where surrounded by the Germans in Bastogne.
