With Memorial Day approaching, only a week away, I thought I would post a series of photos in order to remind us of the true meaning of Memorial Day, to honor Americans who have died in all wars.
Several years ago, I attended the annual D-Day Reenactment in Conneaut, OH. The event, staged in a setting which was chosen due to it’s similarity to France’s Normandy coast, served as an extremely realistic depiction of the D-Day invasion of June 6, 1944. This photo shows the beginning stages of the reenactment as reenactors leave the landing craft as the battle begins. As this week progresses, I will post other photos following the reenactment and demonstrating the courage, dedication, and sacrifice of our servicemen and women who have defended our nation.
A series of photos were put together to publish a book fully documenting this reenactment. The book can be seen and purchased at:
