Remembering D-Day 70 Years Later-- Part 1

From the June 2014 AARP Bulletin by Bill Hogan.

"Along a 50-mile stretch of French coastline, Allied forces led by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower launched the largest airborne attack and amphibious landing in history.

On this anniversary, we reflect on D-Day and those who made up, as journalist Tom Brokaw later put it, "the greatest generation any society ever produced."

As a Life magazine photo editor during World War II, John G. Morris headed for Normandy within weeks of D-Day.  He photographed newly liberated people and towns.  You can check out some striking pictures at www.aarp.org/bulletin.
