D-Day heroes take their rightful place
Role of Canadians often ignored
Post last year:
From the Juno Beach Centre (also for photograph at end):

"On board their assault landing crafts, men of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles heading towards their sector of Juno Beach, June 6th, 1944."


A post by Babbling on Juno Beach, worth repeating. Video and audio here from the CBC Archives, a comprehensive site by CBC News here, and many more links at the Canadian Military History Gateway.

"1st Hussars tanks and men of the 7th Infantry Brigade landing on a crowded beach at Courseulles-sur-Mer, June 6th,1944."

Update: A video by an American eighth grader; as Kate McMillan puts it, "There's hope for us yet":
