Hi Debe,
The enormity of that operation is mind-boggling.  It was the turning point in WWII.  The video gave me goosebumps. Thanks, Debe.  Why isn't D-Day on our calendar?

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS - Thanks for all those stats.  I have a 95-year-old neighbor who was a bomber pilot for the RAF.  I really enjoy listening to his stories about the war.
