Congressional Medal of Honor Awarded to Second Lieutenant John Edward Butts of the U.S. Army @ Utah Beach Landing Museum – Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, France. Second Lieutenant John Edward Butts historically led his platoon against an enemy in Normandy, France, on 14, 16, and 23 June 1944. Although painfully wounded on the 14th near Orglandes and again on the 16th while spearheading an attack to establish a bridgehead across the Douve River, he refused medical aid and remained with his platoon. A week later, near Flottemanville Hague, he led an assault on a tactically important and stubbornly defended hill studded with tanks, antitank guns, pillboxes, and machine-gun emplacements and protected by concentrated artillery and mortar fire. As the attack was launched, 2d. Lt. Butts, at the head of his platoon, was critically wounded by German machine-gun fire. Although weakend by his injuries, he rallied his men and directed one squad to make a flanking movement while he alone made a frontal assault to draw the hostile fire upon himself. Once more he was struck, but by grim determination and sheer courage continued to crawl ahead. When within 10 yards of his objective, he was killed by direct fire. By his superb courage, unflinching valor, and inspiring actions, 2d. Lt. Butts enabled his platoon to take a formidable strongpoint and contributed greatly to the success of his battalion’s mission.

Today was a WW2 memorial day road trip as the 75th anniversary of Dday approaches. There were a lot of emotions. I learned a lot about WW2 that I didn't know. I live a blessed life but there are those that live in the same time as me and do not. Let's live everyday to help others as best we can. You would think by 2019 we as humans would have learned how to stomp out world hunger, abuse and prejudice. Live today to make a better tomorrow. Not just for yourself, but for all. Anyway, the beaches were beautiful and the weather was on our side. Beaches and sand are good for my soul. God, will there be a beach in heaven?

Out of 9,833 American soldiers buried in Normandy, we were looking for one cross. We had a general idea of where Jeff’s great uncle was buried. Not sure how we ended up in the exact row, or how we randomly spotted his name but we did! Beyond grateful that Jeff got to visit him and take a piece of his grandfather with him to his brothers tomb. “Raymond served as a Private First Class, 18th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, U.S. Army during World War II. He resided in Cumberland County, Maine prior to the war. He enlisted in the Army on November 19, 1940, prior to the war, in Portland, Maine. He was noted, at the time of his enlistment, as being employed as a lumbermen and also as Single, without dependents. Raymond "Died Of Wounds" received in action in France during the war and was awarded the Purple Heart.”

Today we went to Sainte-Mère-Église to the Airborne Museum and to Utah beach and museum. It was incredible to see and share with the kids. To see the French and American flags flying everywhere is stunning. The sacrifices for freedom are not forgotten in this place. ❤️ . . .

Thinking about Utah Beach this weekend. It’s Mothers Day here in France, and with U.S. Memorial Day coming up (and it having been 4 years since I touched American soil) - my mind is heavily on my family. My grandfather was here. On this sand. And He survived. He served. He served his country & foreign lands. But he lived to not really ever tell the tale. Like so many of his fellow soldiers that dreadful day - he never spoke about it. Cheers to you, Grandpa Lefty. We think Lu is a lefty, and she’s a little bit French. Maybe it was always meant to be.

In 2017, I took my oldest to Normandy. She was 22, the same age as so many who gave their lives there. Born in an earlier generation, these would have been her relatives, friends and classmates. It’s a powerful and moving experience that will not be forgotten. Thank you to all who have served. . . .

11 nights till the 75th Anniversary of D-Day... The Magnificent Eleven are a group of photos of D-Day taken by war photographer Robert Capa.

Sortie du livre VETERANS BACK TO NORMANDY. Découvrez à travers 140 pages de photographie le retour en Normandie des vétérans américains de la seconde guerre mondiale. Synopsis : Arnaud CHEVALLIER photographe : « Il y a un an, j’ai rencontré Valérie et les membres de l’association. J’ai découvert le formidable travail qu’ils réalisaient pour accueillir les vétérans en Normandie. Cette première rencontre riche en émotion et en échange m’a donné envie d’aller plus loin afin de rendre hommage à ces héros et aux travailleurs de l’ombre. Ces hommes et ces femmes véritables « anges gardiens », m’ont permis de saisir d’authentiques moments de complicités. Au fil des photos, j’ai pu constater que les vétérans se rendaient dans leur deuxième famille, celle de cœur, celle de Normandie. Pendant le reportage j’ai eu la chance de réaliser des instantanés où les sourires croisent les larmes, mais surtout l’immense bonheur des vétérans. Une véritable cure de jouvence m’indiquait Monsieur Shenkle que de recevoir les vibrants hommages du public. J’ai été témoin de la transmission de leur histoire aux plus jeunes, toujours avides de questions et d’anecdotes. Une semaine qui restera à jamais gravée dans le cœur et la mémoire des plus jeunes au plus anciens. » La vente de ce livre est utilisée pour permettre le retour de vétéran américain lors des commémorations du DDAY en Normandie.

To the greatest generation. In the face of the steepest conflict and incredible odds our young men averaging 17-22yrs sacrificed everything in the name of freedom. We shall NEVER forget their sacrifice! Thank you for taking those steps onto those dreadful beaches and fighting for liberty. “They fought together as brothers in arms. They died together and now they sleep side by side. To them we have a SOLEMN OBLIGATION! 🇺🇸 🇬🇧 🇨🇦 🇫🇷

This trip has been so amazing. We have seen so much, but nothing touched me like visiting the American Cemetery which sits on the cliff side above where a lot of the fighting happened on D Day. I am so humbled and grateful for the sacrifices of so many brave men and women. Thank you so much for your service!

Eurotrip 16º dia: Normandia, França🇳🇱 Esse dia amanheceu chuvoso, mas o que é o frio, o vento e a chuva pros curiosos? Pé na estrada e lá fomos nós explorar e descobrir o que a Normandia conta até hoje. Passamos por Carentan, Sainte-Mére-Eglise e fomos parar na praia de Utah, lá entramos no museu do Dia D. que conta tudo sobre a Easy Company da Airborne, que tem parte dele feito sob um bunker nazi, trazendo a réplica do cenário da época, inclusive uma sala de briefing. O sentimento é de muito respeito a quem perdeu a vida, em um dos cenários mais catastróficos da história mundial, com apenas um objetivo: a libertação do nazismo.

Almost 75 years ago on the morning of June 6th, German soldiers looked out of this bunker on Pointe du Hoc seeing thousands of ships heading their way. No words can describe the visits to Utah and Omaha beaches, truly a humbling experience.

LVT-2 (Landing Vehicle, Tracked) @ Utah Beach Landing Museum – Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, France. In the 1930s, following a devastating Florida hurricane, businessman Donald Roebling, grandson of the designer of the Brooklyn Bridge, designs an amphibious vehicle that could rescue people stuck in the dangerous marshes. In 1941, the Marine Corps and the Navy are both interested in this innovative vehicle and order the first militarized version, known as the Landing Vehicle Tracked (LVT-1), or “Alligator” in reference to the Everglades where it is developed and tested. From 1943 to 1944 nearly 3,000 of its successor, the LVT-2 “Water Buffalo,” are produced. Featuring improved suspension and buoyancy, the LVT-2 can carry 20 infantrymen and a machine gunner, or three tons of cargo. In March 1944, following combat experience in the Pacific, this version is reinforced with armored plates to protect the crew. The Water Buffalo, which can travel at 8 miles an hour in the water and up to 20 miles an hour on land, is also used as armor support. In 1945, the Americans leave two LVT-2s in the dunes of Utah Beach. This one is used by the Amphibious Battalion for logistical support in the days following the assault on Utah Beach. It shuttles the crew between the supply ships anchored at sea and the beach, and through the marshes located just behind the dunes. (UBLM)

Quelle est l'origine des noms de code des 5 plages du débarquement ? Les noms des plages américaines, Omaha et Utah, sont choisi par le général Bradley, en référence à la ville et à l'état dont sont originaires deux GI travaillant à l'état-major. Alors que le général Montgomery propose Goldfich (poisson rouge), Swordfish (espadon) et Jellyfish (méduse) pour nommer les plages britanniques, seuls Gold et Sword sont retenus. La troisième plage reçoit le prénom de la femme d'un autre officier supérieur : Juno. N'hésitez pas à liker et partager ce post si il vous a plu ! merci Information tirée du livre le petit quizz du Jour-J - Editions Pierre de Taillac - format 14 x 21 cm - 180 pages - prix : 12,90 €.
