My uncle was there. He would never, ever talk about it. He died in the late 1970's, when I was an enlisted AF Weather Observer in central NY.

In 1990, my wife and I got to visit Omaha and Utah beaches, whilst I was assigned to an airbase in Germany. That's when I understood why he didn't want to talk about it. I'm truly sorry I wasn't able to show him our pictures of the beaches and, even more so, of the smiling Norman French who still like Americans (much more so than the rest of the French).
