It was 64 years ago Friday that the Bedford Boys came ashore on a French beach code named "Omaha." As it does every year, the National D-Day Memorial held a ceremony to commemorate the amphibious landing.
Friday was bright and blazing hot, a contrast to the overcast, cold, wet day when the men of the 29th infantry division went ashore in 1944. In spite of the bright weather, there was a somber aspect. Part of this is due to the fact that many of the young men who landed that day never came home. The other is that those who did are now slowly fading away.
