A tribute to veterans of Operation Overlord

Today is the 64th anniversary of the D-Day landings at Normandy. The progressive rock band, Contrarian, wrote the song, Operation Overlord, as a tribute to those veterans who fought and died in the Allied invasion.

This week, we buried my grandfather, Lt. Colonel Walter P. Rupert, III, who enlisted in the Army during WWII and volunteered to train as a pilot in the Army Air Corps (now the US Air Force).  Though he didn’t participate in Operation Overlord, his Air Force career spanned three wars.  After he retired from the Air Force, he worked 15 years in the Veterans’ Administration, helping other vets navigate the complex bureaucracy to receive the benefits they’d earned in serving our country.

To of all those who fought and died at Normandy, my grandfather, and all who wear or have worn the uniform to protect the US, her interests, and her values, I say thank you and may God bless you.

Most of the French casualties were the result of artillery fire from American ships attempting to knock out German fortifications prior to the landing of hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops. Reports from a makeshift hospital in the French town of St. Mere Eglise said the carnage was far worse than the French had anticipated and reaction against the American invasion was running high. “We are dying for no reason,” said a Frenchman speaking on condition of anonymity. “Americans can’t even shoot straight. I never thought I’d say this, but life was better under Adolph Hitler.”

Sad, but very likely true.
