67th Anniversary of D-Day

Rate this post

June 6, 1944


Sixty seven years ago the allies launched the D-Day Invasion on the beaches of Normandy, France.





The reason I used the pictures of statues instead of actual pictures from the D-Day invasion was to show a contrast between true art and the garbage displayed below by a progressive airhead. One a memorial to the brave men who fought and died that day, the other a slap in the face to those same men.

An installation of 1,000 casts of Russian(who did not participate in the D-Day invasion), German and American combat helmets of WWII which also represent turtles, to denounce global violence, created by French artist Rachid Khimoune, is seen on Omaha Beach in Colleville sur Mer, western France, Sunday, June 5, 2011 at the eve of the D-Day Anniversary.

COLLEVILLE-SUR-MER, France (AP) — French artist Rachid Khimoune has installed 1,000 sculptures shaped like sea turtles on Omaha Beach to mark the 67th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy.

    Tom this is great! The photos in your post memorialize the bravery of the American and British warriors who rescued Europe from the Axis onslaught.
    The French guy has the soul of a cake decorator. Most of them do. That’s why they always get their asses kicked in battle.

     
  2. Never forget the bravery of these men…may they rest in peace.
    As for the French dude, can’t say what I really think…you know where that thought might be heading 🙂
