TommorowToday is the 70th Anniversary of D-Day. While I have no personal connection to the day, as my late father served during the Korean War and his brother, my uncle served in the Pacific Theater during WWII. In fact, the only distant connection I have to D-Day is having been a fan of James Doohan who served in the Canadian Army and was injured in his leg, his chest and hand during the D-Day assault.
During his acting career, he was able to hide his injuries usually by carrying tools or other props in his injured hand.
However, while the day is worth remembering, it has become a sort of “lesser” memorial day. And as such, it deserves to be remembered with respect.
