Thread: Belated Veteran's Day Salute

  1. #1

    Default Belated Veteran's Day Salute

    Dear FS Friends,

    It's saddening that yet another Veteran's Day has passed here in the U.S. and no-one posted any pictures specifically to honor our Veteran's. Here is a picture of the iconic DC3/C47 in a fly over of the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France.

    A a somber, yet proud, salute to all our Veteran's - old and young - active and retired - alive and deceased who have kept our country free. We salute you for your service.

    Great pic over the Memorial fields in Normandy, I visited this place several times with deep respect. In Holland we have our WW2 remembrance day the 4th of May, and we celebrate our liberation day may 5th.

    Yes, we had November 11th lately in France. It usually was mostly WWI as it was question recently to unify all those war celebrations into less, single days
