Memories of D-Day documented on video

Andrew and I heard about this awesome website, Witness to War, while watching the CBS Evening News tonight and haven't been able to pull ourselves away from the videos since.

The Witness to War project is not about the set piece movements of armies, the military strategies of generals, nor the geo political nuances that led to war. Instead, it is about the ‘foxhole’ view of combat as seen by the soldiers who experienced it. It is about the fear, the emotions, the training, and the previously untapped wells of personal strength that enabled ordinary individuals to survive, and in some cases thrive, under extraordinary pressures and almost unimaginable danger.
This Saturday, June 6, is the anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy (D-Day). Visit the D-Day section of Witness to War and spend a few minutes listening to first-hand accounts of what happened.

I know war stories and birthday's don't make a great pair, but I still want to say Happy Birthday Kyle anyway. We hope you're having a fantastic girls' weekend in Naples with all of your friends.

(My apologies go out to Charlie Gibson for watching CBS, but the basketball game was on. Sorry.)
