As time moves on we're approaching the point where the last participants in D-Day and the Battle of Normandy are themselves nearing the end of their lives.

Some became very good friends. The first D-day veteran I became friends with was Tommy Paterson. You can read a bit about him here.
In addition, below are some photos of various meetings with veterans over the years. We owe them a lot.
