On July 25, 2020, the Presidential Unit Citation was awarded to the 30th Infantry Division--often referred to as the "Old Hickory Division"--for their gallantry in battling the Nazis in August, 1944 at Mortain, France. More than 2,000 men from the 30th were injured or killed. The end of the video brings a tear to the eye. God bless all of them, either here or on the other side.

Today we honor the fallen. This is my first Memorial Day at home in a while. The last two years I have been photographing the American overseas military cemeteries. If you want to follow my project to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, visit: Never Home Heroes.
After a long struggle, the world changed for the better on this date 75 years ago. Let's remember the anniversaries of both VE day (today) and VJ (8/15) day as a sign of respect for those who sacrificed so much for freedom. BBC has awesome images from this date in 1945 here: BBC Photos
