D-Day: The lost heroes


«June 62, and D-Day once more returns to Nomarndy. The tide is low at Utah Beach and Omaha Beach, as it was then. The sand hardens underfoot, as it did then. A rusted metal stump thrusting from the sand, a remnant of the rows of barriers that lined this shore on June 6, 1944. Clouds crowd the sky this morning. It will be gray day, as it was then.”
June 2002, Alexandra went back to the beaches for National Geographic Magazine with a bunch of survivors and their families. They come every June like a clusters of silent men, with their kin and their memories.
