Nice,

My grandfather finally started talking about the war after 60+ years of not being able to talk about it. He did an interview for a local university last year. Turned out he was a sniper and on a team that planned the invasion of Normandy. He was hit by shrapnel from a landmine on the beach there. He laid there on the beach 3 days before someone on rounds picking up bodies discovered he was still alive. That was his 2nd purple hart. He told stories about what happend there that would make anyone shiver!

I read an article about the famous D-day photos. Out of the 160 photos taken by Robert Capa, only 11 survived because they rushed to process them and fucked up!
