Photos: The 65th Anniversary of D-Day on the Normandy Beaches
http://blogs.denverpost.com/captured/2009/06/05/the-65th-anniversary-of-d-day-on-the-normandy-beaches/

Saturday, June 6th, marks the 65th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy. On D-Day, June 6, 1944, Allied troops departed England on planes and ships, made the trip across the English Channel and attacked the beaches of Normandy in an attempt to break through Hitler’s “Atlantic Wall” and break his grip on Europe. Some 215,000 Allied soldiers, and roughly as many Germans, were killed or wounded during D-Day and the ensuing nearly three months it took to secure the Allied capture of Normandy. Commemoration events, from re-enactments to school concerts, were being held in seaside towns and along the five landing beaches that stretch across 50 miles (80 kilometers) of Normandy coastline. The big event is Saturday, when Obama, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, the Canadian and British prime ministers and Prince Charles gather for a ceremony amid the rows of white crosses and Stars of David at the American cemetery, which is U.S. territory.

Although these pictures were not taken by Walter Howard "Walt" Williams, a WWII Army and Air Corp Veteran, he does remember something about, and has experienced a great deal of, what we see in these pictures.

Walter Howard "Walt" Williams was born and raised in Scott County, Tennessee. He is a brother to Julian Eugene "Gene" Williams, a Navy Veteran of the Korean War that you can see in another album on this website.
