REMEMBERING D-DAY

Do you know what the letter "D" really stand for in D-Day? Here are some good sources for keeping the memory alive:

The Sixtieth Anniversary of D-Day @ Blackfive - The Paratrooper of Love. [Via Mudville Gazette.]
Normandy 1944 @ Encyclopædia Britannica. [Via Patriots for the Defense of America.]

German Chancellor, Gerhard Schröder, attended the ceremony. For a related topic, read my post, HISTORY REVISIONISM IN GERMANY. My "home" country, Sweden, didn't play a good role during the World Wars. As a neutral country it acted in a middle-of-the-road fashion without taking any real stand against Hitler's Germany. Read my post, THE DARK SIDE OF SWEDEN, if you want to get a glimpse of the dark parts of history. [Editor's note: It is the National Day of Sweden on June 6.]
