D-day 1944 by Dorota97 D-day 1944 by Dorota97
I should now write that this day is so much valid for me.
But no, every day is important.
Today it began... ! D-Day... Hour-H (6.30)
But you must remember that it isn't only this day. It also 7 June 1944, 6 July 1944, but also June 1943 happened something important !
I won't be boring you how this operation was important... When Hitler slept calmly, like probably you ;)
I will tell you about WAC, women which also helped with this operation..

"INVASION -- WACS PLAY PROUD ROLE
JUNE 6, 1944: A shift of Air Force Wac teletype operators had just reported for duty on the midnight-to-morning shift. Suddenly, teletypes tapped out the first words of the greatest military operation ever conceived.
Machines reeled off one field order after another. Virtually every bomber and fighter in the Command was being called out from secret air-fields throughout England. The invasion was on!
Field orders, annexes and bombing lines were relayed to American and British stations in the UK. The five Wacs on duty -- Cpl. Eugenia Hall, Rideway, Pa.; Sgt. Carmen R. Brand, Staunton, Va.; Cpl. Elsie S. Wheeler, Ada, Ill.; T/5 Mary Denton, Decatur, Tenn.; T/5 Helen M. Sweeny, Chicago -- stuck to their machines through those early morning hours, almost completely overwhelmed by the messages pouring from every high headquarters to air force stations, then on to combat wings. The pace was maintained until the shift was relieved at 0730.
As the Wacs stepped from the huge underground room into the sunlight, they raised tired eyes to a sky black with planes -- bombers, fighters, troop carriers, gliders. They had helped put those aircraft there.
Throughout England Wacs looked up and felt the same pride. For weeks, Wacs at headquarters, Southern Base Section, 16, 17 and 18 Districts had worked long hours to help fill hundreds of craft with supplies and men. Every Wac in the Theater felt she was part of the military team striving for a single objective -- invasion of the Continent.
-The WAC: the Story of the WAC in the ETO, 1945."



Powinnam teraz napisać jak ten dzień jest ważny dla mnie.
Ale nie, każdy dzień jest ważny.
Dzisiaj jest rocznica D-Day, lądowania w Normandii..
Ale trzeba pamiętać, że nie tylko ten dzień jest ważny, każde inne dni po ale również przed operacją Overlord..
Nie będę zanudzać jaki to dzień, ta operacja, która zmieniła bieg historii kiedy Hitler sobie spokojnie spał jak pewnie większość z was.
Do góry jest o WAC, oczywiście mały urywek zapożyczony z stronki o Women Army Corps. 
Kobiety również miały duży udział w tej historii... O czym większość ludzi nie wie, nie pamięta.

Żeby było bardziej po polskiemu, wiele było Polaków w oddziałach Amerykańskich, w 82 dywizji powietrznodesantowej również, to nie jest Amerykańskie czy Brytyjskie święto, również i Polacy powinni to pamiętać.
Zachęcam wieczorkiem do obejrzenia kronik z D-Day.

(+podziwiam jak komuś chciało się to przeczytać)

Happy 71st Anniversary of D-Day.

Nasi walczyli w najcięższych bitwach tej wojny, na wschodnim i zachodnim froncie. Szkoda, że później o tym niektórzy zapomnieli....

Owszem, no niestety, ale ponoć jak ktoś nie pamięta swojej historii, to ją powtórzy..

Zdjęcie skojarzyło mi się trochę z grą Call of Duty 2. Ja przeczytałem tekst pod zdjęciem i uważam, że każdy prawdziwy Polak oglądający to zdjęcie powinien to przeczytać.
