This day, 72 years ago.

Ever been here? If not, you should make it a point to go. You won’t regret it.

Back to the grind, here. More, later.

About vmijpp

VMIJPP hails from the star city of the south, Roanoke, Virginia. A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.

    Weren’t any ‘safe-spaces’ back then either. From Pont du Hoc to pajama-boy in a couple of generations.

    The memorial in Bedford has a complicated history–my old boss from West Point, Bill McIntosh, ran it for 10 years. I’ve been twice. Also been to D-Day beaches–extraordinary places, both. haunted still.
