    Thanks Rock and Glock.

    An uncle by marriage was in the second wave at Omaha Beach. Another uncle by marriage was an assault boat driver at Omaha Beach.

    My first cousin, Forrest Armentrout, was assigned to the 502 PIR, 101st Airborne Division. Forrest survived the D-Day invasion and Market Garden. He was KIA at the Battle of The Bulge.

    George Berry, my US Army EOD buddy, was with the Canadian army in WWII. He was in the first wave to hit Juno Beach.

    Our part of WV lost several soldiers in the invasion. i remember the funerals we attended while Dad was in the US Navy.
