Me 2! Thank you to all veterans. Don’t forget the Merchant Marine. ” Mariners died at a rate of 1 in 26, which was the highest rate of casualties of any service. All told, 733 American cargo ships were lost and 8,651 of the 215,000 who served perished in troubled waters and off enemy shores.”

We were road tripping the Midwest in 1993. We visited Swimbo’s cousins in Missouri. Her cousin James participated on D Day. They were planning a 50 year anniversary for the next year. I asked if he wanted to go. He said, “No. One trip across that beach was enough for me.”

We have Anzac day down under to respect our veterans.
Thanks to America during WII we are safe from the peril that could have prevailed in the Pacific.
