Shanelle Zaino's curator insight, October 14, 2014 8:27 PM

This is an amazing collection that Jonathan Andrew has comprised. It is eerie to see the remnants of these WWII structures. Looking through the images the one that is most unusual to me is :The SK Observation Tower, Fliegerhorst, Hemiksem, Belgium. This tower is reminiscent of a space station or a building from the future. It is very impressive that this photographer has captured these constructions in a such a light that seem to be aglow. It is in this light that they seem to speak of all the history they hold.

D-Day Veterans from same unit meet 67 years later | World at War | Scoop.it

The two veterans hope this is the first of more meetings to come

 

Alphonse Lara of New Port Richey was part of the D-Day invasion. As it turns out, our story led to something Lara never expected. Another solider from his very same unit saw it and got in touch with him.

 

Global Research's insight:

The two met for lunch Sunday at an Applebee's in Wesley Chapel. It's the first time Lara and Al LaEzza have been in the same place since June 6th 1944, when they landed at Omaha Beach on D-Day.
