Along with all the well deserved memorials on D-day, how about some love for Taffy 3.

While there were many, many heroic battles during WWII; D-Day was the
start of crushing Hitler's grip on Europe. That's what 06 June is about.

Allied Forces Invaded Normandy

My childhood next door neighbor (& 2nd 'father') was awarded a Siver Star
for his actions on 11/24/43 at Piva Forks area, Bougainville Island while
serving with the Third Battalion, Twelfth Marines, Third Marine Division. [en.wikipedia.org]

Silver Star Citation excerpt-
...without hesitation, occupied this exposed position and though
subjected to continuous enemy artillery and small arms fire that killed
the position until he had adjusted, coordinated and directed the fire of
seven battalions of artillery and conducted the firing of a barrage that
completely destroyed the enemy installations and killed hundreds of
Japanese soldiers, thus permitting the passage of the Japanese lines by
our troops with a minimum of losses....

Posted elsewhere yesterday.

Watching an old British TV show, "A Touch of Frost"; Frost and a bunch of men are at a pub. The barkeep says to one of them, "Your wife is on the phone," to which another responds, "That's a scary phrase". They all start telling what to them is a scary phrase; "when your wife says, 'my mom is going to stay with us for a few weeks'," things like that, and are having a good laugh.

They turn to a much older gentleman sitting at the next table, and ask him, "what is the scariest phrase you ever heard?"

Staring off at something unseeable, he quietly responds, "Fix bayonets".

The bar goes silent.

Just something running through my mind this D-Day.
