Soon we shall engage in combat. In order to defeat the enemy, we must fire on our homeland. This is the price of liberty. Vive le France!

Bientôt, nous nous engagerons dans le combat. Pour vaincre l'ennemi, nous devons tirer sur notre patrie. C'est le prix de la liberté. Vive le France!

  Not sure if this would be the right thread to say it, but since its the only D-Day thread I've found I assume so. But I'd say I am at least proud and honored for those who gave their lives during D-Day fighting for what they thought for. Frankly being in a military family, I Honor my dad's Uncle Norman every June 6th, who actually fought on the beaches during the siege. (sadly, records of his regiment is still "lost," but I do know for a fact he fought and died on that beach and is now buried at Normandy with his fellow brothers). I honor those soldiers who fought and defended at D-Day, German and Allies alike. Its kind of sad now-a-days that newer generations tend to forget the sacrifice they made all those years ago in order to have peace for the future, in any war for that matter. But I would like to honor all veterans who fought that day at Normandy. And to those who have family members as well that fought and defended during that day, thank you all for your service. o7 o7

Was that because of the St. Louis fire for US Military records in 1976? I lost my father's service records because of that fire. However the US  Military does have some other records to note and saved elsewhere. They may not have the big file that will have everything of the service member prior to 1976. If you do a genealogy study as a family member, the DoD can provide you information as such. It has been over 75 years, so it should be easier in releasing such information. Good luck in your quest for your Uncle Norman's service background.

 Oh I did not know of the St. Louis fire in 1976, that might explain it. My mom does most of the Genealogy, that's how we discovered him. But she has been busy with other family members popping up all over, even going back all the way into Russia lol. But I hope one day we can find his service record and know more  And thank you. And I am sorry to hear that, maybe one day you can retrieve some sort of information for your fathers service records. I wish you the best of luck! And thank you for your fathers Service. o7
