Honoring D-Day: The Day That Changed the World

Some gave some. Some gave all. Never forget.

D-Day Pauline Baird Jones

June 6, 1944, will always be remembered as D-Day, the day when the Allies launched Operation Overlord, the largest amphibious assault in history. More than 156,000 troops from the United States, Britain, Canada, and other Allied nations bravely landed on the beaches of Normandy, France. This daring operation marked the turning point in World War II and the beginning of the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi tyranny.

The soldiers who took part in D-Day faced insurmountable challenges, from rough seas to heavily fortified enemy positions. Their bravery and determination were unparalleled as they fought through the chaos and carnage to secure a foothold on the continent. The success of D-Day was a testament to their courage and the meticulous planning and coordination of the Allied forces.

As we reflect on D-Day, we pay tribute to the incredible valor and sacrifice of those who served. Their actions on that fateful day changed the course of history and ensured the freedoms we enjoy today. We honor their memory and recognize the profound impact of their bravery.

D-Day is a reminder of the extraordinary lengths to which ordinary people will go to defend freedom and justice. Let us never forget their sacrifice and continue to honor their legacy by remembering the importance of unity and perseverance in the face of adversity.

Out of Time Series by Pauline Baird Jones

My father-in-law was a ball turret gunner in a B-17, the warplane that is featured in OUT OF TIME, the first book in my OUT OF TIME STORIES. I was priveledged to interview him and other veterans about their experiences in the B-17 and during their time serving in World War II. I was left with a deep conviction that they totally deserved to be called The Greatest Generation. 

If you’ve never seen the movie, THE LONGEST DAY, settle in and watch it today, or even SAVING PRIVATE RYAN (I cried all through the beginning! It was so hard to watch what those boys—because they were just boys—went through trying to get ashore and then trying to get up those cliffs. 

And then they pushed forward again and again, doing what had to be done. One uncle was capture duing the Battle of the Bulge. He was able to come hom. 

Another uncle was killed just a month before the war ended. He was nineteen. My grandmother used to tell me about him. He was a radio man, but when one of the gunners was killed during a kamakazi attack, he stepped up that position. They said he continued to fire until the plane hit.

I dont’ know how they did it. But I know I am grateful they secured the freedom for me and my children. 

In OUT OF TIME, I tried very hard to capture that bravery and their willingness to do step up and do their duty. And I’m so proud of my grandmothers and their courage as they sent their sons off to war. 

I know we just had Memorial Day but today, I hope you can take time to remember the generation that saved the world. Some gave some. Some gave all. Never forget.
