    Nice tribute to those who both died on and survived that day of days.

    When I was a kid, if we still happened to be in school from too many winter snow days, we would get this day off. Kids today don’t know what the date means.

    Why are there so many crosses? I get that it was d-day though

    I believe the crosses are posts to hold up the in-water barbed water. The Germans did expect an invasion from the sea, but weren’t sure when or where, so they did make some preparations.

    They were truly the “Greatest Generation” (not to diminish the sacrifices of our current military – God bless ’em) and remembering them once or twice a year helps put our current woes into perspective.

    …and the third year it is appropriate. .

    Reading some of these comments makes me sad.

    Schulz did a number of D-Day strips in the later years of Peanuts. This strip is from 1990. Around that time he was no longer limited to four panels every weekday, which allowed him to do single panel scenes like this one.

    My father’s brother was there. He was wounded D-Day plus 4. This should never be forgotten! Snoopy keeps WWI alive and now our WWII Vets and leaving us. I, too, thank our Snoopy and Peanuts for remembering. Perhaps in 60yearssomeone will remember.

    My Dad was in the 4th wave to hit the beach, and he survived without a scratched. The men on both sides of him, didn’t.

    I wish more people would acknowledge D-Day, it was very important to us and our allies in France! Bless them all!

    Operation Neptune…

    A special thank you to Air Chief Marshal Arthur Tedder, 1st Baron Tedder, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, General Bernard Montgomery, Lieutenant General Omar Bradley, Admiral Bertram Ramsay, Air Chief Marshal Trafford Leigh-Mallory, Lieutenant General Walter Bedell Smith…

    Without their planning, this might be a different world today!

    Take a moment to remember the men and women who fought for our freedom on D-Day.

    From what I’ve heard, that is no longer the case…re: Obama administration. Our Military is smaller and less able to do its job in a lot of areas.

    Such a fitting tribute

    As alluded to in other posts, this invasion of the French coast and the resulting battle, which lasted more than two months, liberated France from Nazi occupation and is considered the beginning of the end of World War Two. It was the largest sea invasion ever attempted, and, as stated below, through heavily fortified water onto an equally armed shore. Hence, the picture above, reminding all that it was not just shore defenses, including armed bunkers pointing seaward, that those men had to contend with.

    I’ve been looking forward to this strip every year for over fifty years. I never get tired of this strip!

    My father was out on the ships watching. His outfit landed two days later since they were an AA unit and needed a ‘clean’ beach to land on. Their main armament was the M16 halftrack with quad 50s mounted on a turret.He told me that he saw his cousin’s body still on the beach from D-Day. I cannot verify that and my source has been gone since 1999.

    My great-uncle Al landed on Juno Beach on D-Day with the Winnipeg Rifles. (Interesting fact: Juno Beach was supposed to have been called “Jelly” Beach because all of the British beaches had fish names – Gold(fish) Sword(fish) and Jelly(fish) – but Churchil personally vetoed the name saying it was sounded to frivolous a name for a place where men would die).

    At least two of his future brothers-in-law – my uncles Harry and Zigmunt – were fighting in Italy. Uncle Zig was part of the Polish Army that finally cracked the German position at Cassino. For this, they and the other troops on the Italian front were labelled “D-Day dodgers” by Lady Astor.

    I’m glad for this cartoon. Sorry that most news outlets didn’t even carry a small mention…

    Amazing how little attention has been paid to this historic day. Maybe that’s why we’re probably having to repeat it over and over and over again….SSDD….when will we ever learn….
