Tomorrow morning, 60 years ago, the French Normandy coast saw the biggest military operation in the history of mankind.
It was the start of the liberation of Europe.
My grandfather Friedrich Vasters (my "F.") fell later the same year in France doing his duty as a motor-bike courier for the Wehrmacht in France. He and many other German soldiers had to die because Europe had to be freed from the grip of the German Nazi government. Many allied soldiers and German soldiers and members of the French resistance lost their lives on the beaches and field of northern France that day and just because of that I think this is a day to celebrate today's Europe.
Thank you, Allied Soldiers.
