The Allies invaded Normandy today 66 years ago. My grandfather flew the C47s that dropped the 82nd Airborne early that morning before the 1st waves of landing craft hit the beaches. This picture was taken at Omaha Beach by Robert Capa, he took several rolls of film that morning in the 1st wave. Most of the pictures were lost due to an over eager technichian who hurriedly tried to develope the pictures. I cannot imagine what it was like for those men on that beach that day. 3000 of them didnt make it off of it.
