Here it is in black and white, the order of the day given to each heroic warier in the wee hours of June 6, 1944.
George, my brother, was to parachute at 1:30 AM.
The waves of men storming the beach hit the water at first light. The largest amphibious attack in history had begun.
The young American, British, and Canadian men gladly gave their lives for freedom.
As the first wave of soldiers hit the beaches, 90% gave their lives.
The second wave were killed at a rate of 80%. . . . .
The third wave. . . .
The fourth wave. . .
The fifth wave. . .
Finally after entering the bloody water and stepping over their beached comrades, the sixth wave broke through to the German line.
The beginning of the end of Hitler’s wicked wish thanks to our warrior heroes!
