In the mid ground you can see my father telling my daughter about his uncle, who served in the US Army and survived D-Day. History is important to understand and pass on to a new generation. This place has a special place in our hearts.
A wonderfully composed shot of a memorial to an important event in our history. It is neat that Ladybug is hearing the story of what it all meant from her Grandfather!

Touching...They were "The greatest Generation" indeed!
My dad fought in the Pacific Theater and was in the Army Air Force as part of the 505th Bomb Group stationed on Tinian at the time of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He flew in a B-29 Superfortress. I remember going to reunions with him and the stories were so compelling although he rarely shared them with us outside of the context of these reunions.

This is a great monument in a wonderful contemplative scenery. Your shot tells a whole story.

Nice shot, and your narrative makes it a touching shot. Good work.

Yes, history has much to teach us and the D-Day events are part of the lives of many still with us. This does look to be a very significant memorial.
