Saw TurkeyHunter posted some pictures of Normandy. My Grandfather was in the 2nd Infantry Division which landed shortly after D-Day. He never really spoke of it but I remember him saying how bad the ride from Ireland was. Found these pictures along with other items he had brought back from Europe. He received a Purple Heart and a Silver Star. Not 100% but believe it is him on the downed plane. I wonder what city the photo was were taken? Anyone know of an organization that could find out who some of the people are in other photos that he had? After reading his papers and history of his group. I am very thankful for the past and current members that are serving to protect us.

really cool pictures.

Was recently going through pictures from my grandfather who served in North Africa and Italy and my wifes grandfather (as they both passed within 3 months of each other) and her grandfather served in the pacific. He had some amazing shots in Japan during the occupation after the war ended.
