I looked at that image and tried to wrap my head around it. More Americans died on June 6th than in the Afghanistan over 10 years.
I don’t know what else I can add to what has been already said, written and filmed about D-Day. I do know that without D-Day it would have been next to impossible for the Allies to win WWII.
73 years later, D-Day still resonates across the world. I don’t think we should ever forget what was done. It is highly unlikely that we will ever see an operation on that scale ever again.
I think seeing the film D-Day: Over Normandy a couple weeks ago really drove all this home. I hope this story never gets old, and that we never forget what was done this day.
For Episode 45 I had the honor of interviewing Tim Gray who the President and CEO of Tim Gray Media. Tim has many years experience in television and film.

Tim is a two-time New England Emmy Award winning producer and writer. He started WWII Foundation as a way to tell the personal stories of the Veterans who served during this time.
We talked about this latest project, D-Day: Over Normandy, and how it came together. It was his first project that he filmed entirely with a drone. The trailer looks cool, and I want the Blu-Ray to see it in High Def. Tim told me about his experiences doing other films and why this means so much to him. He was candid talking about working the Bill Belichick. I didn’t know how passionate Bill was about our military and veterans. I am a Saints fan and have to give him a solid Who Dat for how he supports us.
