  1. Thank you for the link to the story of Billie D. Harris. My husband has served in the USN for 22 years and is getting ready (ironically) to go to the USS Normandy for his last tour of duty. We both hold WWII Veterans and their families in high regard for their sacrifices. What I mostly loved about this story was the reminder that many French people also still remember. So, even though I look like a tear-stained raccoon now, my heart is truly warmed!

    1. Thank you and your husband for your service to our country.I love the greatest generation as well and it is humbling to think that in a decade, most will be gone. Any time I start to get frustrated behind an older driver I think of those sacrifices that they made that we will never know personally and I just can't get mad. May your husband have a safe tour of duty! Thank you for your comment --

  2. I cried through the WWII story too - thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your 'Caught My Eye' posts!!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
