Came to Normandy to pay my respects to the fallen today. The Battle of Normandy began the liberation of France from Nazi Germany. It began with an amphibious assault on June 6 with an estimated 10,000 casualties that day, and 226,386 Allied casualties over the entire battle. These men went through hell trying to land on the beaches and climb up the cliffs, especially at Utah Beach. Operation Overlord would be the largest amphibious assault in human history and was a significant turning point in the Western front. It’s hard to put into words the feeling you get standing on the same beach as all those brave men did. Many knowing that death was not too far away. The carnage that ensued was something out of Dante’s “Inferno”. I would strongly recommend to my fellow Americans that they visit the beaches themselves. Minor inconveniences such as getting mud on your shoes seem like nothing, when contemplating that these 18-21 year olds sacrificed their entire future so that we may be able to freely visit France today. The same type of future that I work hard for, these men sacrificed so that I have the ability to have one. Never forget June 6, 1944 #ushistory#history#normandy#normandybeach#dday#neverforget#neverforgotten#werememberthem#military#militaryhistory#omahabeach#omahabeachmemorial#proudamerican🇺🇸
상헌투어 -이스터. Rapa Nui 190315-190318 일출, 일몰 명소 통가리키와 타하이 다 먹어버리고 왔습니다!! . 이스터 섬을 돌다보면 정말 많고 다양한 모아이들을 만나볼 수 있는데, 하루 이틀 보다보면.. 이게 돌하르방인지 여기가 제주도인지 별 감흥이 없게 된다. 하지만 새벽에 피곤한 몸을 이끌고 섬 반대편의 통가리키까지 간다면, 이 섬에 더 오래 머물고 싶다는 생각이 들게 될 것이다. 모아이 석상 외에도 섬 어딜 가든 아름다운 해변이 있고 친절한 주민들이 있는 이스터 섬은 정말 매력적인 곳이었다. 그리고 이 섬을 남미와 구분해서 쓰게 된 이유는, 원주민들이 폴리네시아인이며 남미와 전혀 관련이 없는 곳이기 때문이다. 그저 칠레의 영토에 속해 있을 뿐 문화, 인종, 동식물 어느것도 남미와의 연관성은 찾을 수 없는 곳이다. . #travel#travelgram#travelholic#easterisland#island#moai#rapanui#여행#여행스타그램#여행에미치다#이스터섬#모아이#귀국#dday#12
After an intense 20 hours which resulted in an emergency c-section, then 6 hours recovery for me and 6 hours in special care for my boy, we met. I don’t remember a lot of this moment because of the drugs, but I do remember the overwhelming feeling of love and sadness all mixed in one. Love for him, but sadness that it’s just us #thatsolomummalife#journey#dday#intensebirth#csection#csectionbirth#csectionmommy#love#overwhelming#firstmeeting

Pegasus Bridge 1944 and Pegasus Bridge 2018 in a museum a couple hundred yards from its original site. On June 6, 1944 the greatest amphibious landing in history took place on the beaches of Normandy, known worldwide as D-day. For many inhabitants of the occupied countries in the west, this was a day never to be forgotten. Over 130.000 allied troops set foot on French soil to liberate them from German occupation. Just after midnight, on the night of 5/6 June one of the most daring actions of that day took place. British troops landed by glider and in a lightning attack captured the Bénouville bridge over the canal near Caen. Today, this bridge is better known as the Pegasus bridge, named after the flying horse in the division emblem of the 6th British Airborne division. Not only the Bénouville bridge was their objective, but also the bridge over de river Orne, now known as the Horsa bridge. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 🚫No political opinion and no hate here🚫 These photos are just representative of history❗ ✔️Do not be offended by these photos✔️ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ For more facts and photos about WW2 follow my account @todays_ww2 ↘️History's crew↙️ @history_of_ww2 @ww.history @ww2airbornecollector @la_guerre_en_lorraine @world_war_history._ @todays_ww2 @m1_helmet_ww2 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #ww2#ww#wwii#wwtwo#worldwar2#worldwar#hitler#adolfhitler#worldwartwo#nazi#wehrmacht#ss#worlwar#ww1#projecthistory#omaha#dday#war#france#normandy#usa#england#germany#nazigermany#history#army#military#beach#gun#berlin

스타트업 ; 설립한 지 오래되지 않은 신생 벤처기업으로, 미국 실리콘밸리에서 처음 사용된 용어. D.CAMP(디데이) 행사가 마무리되는 시점에 소름이 끼쳤다. 우린 분리수거도 제대로 못하는 #멍청이 였기 때문에. 쓰레기통이 작아서? 주최측에서 처리가 미흡해서? 아니다. 인성이 덜 자란거다. 몸만 #자란다 고해서 어른이 아닌데 왜 그랬을까? 다른 시각으로 세상을 바꾸겠다며 투자 유치를 간절히 바라던 청년들이 모였던게 맞는지도 의심스럽다. 불쾌한 밤이다.
