In the intervening 26 years, nearly 20,000 tides had come and gone and little remains visible of the greatest military landing in man’s history of endless warring. What’s to be seen is mostly in a superb museum and a panoramic cemetery. The cemetery memorializes with dignity and grandeur the event and the dead, and moves one deeply.

Sunrises and sunsets are real jerks about putting things in perspective.” ~ Josh Lieb

That’s usually how it’s referenced is we’re from Milwaukee, yeah.” ~ Peter Buffett
