comeback d-day landing

(via Imgur)

That’s why we should never tell a veteran that they can’t go anywhere.

They’ve done it before and know the right routes. And if they can’t travel, it’s because they’ve got balls of steel and would set off alarms at airport security. So there.

Facts:—

The retirement home for this particular gent didn’t stop him from going. This was something the media have added to the D-Day Landings memorial stories to make headlines. The home manager/owner on BBC 1 this morning explained that the gent was unsure at first if he wanted to go, but at the last minute took the trip on his own.

Meanwhile…

China used the 70th anniversary of World War Two‘s D-Day landings to praise Germany for its contrition over its wartime past and slammed Japan for what Beijing views as Tokyo‘s continued denial of its brutal history. (via China Daily Mail)

Interestingly…

June 6th is National Doughnut Day in the USA. (Foodimentary)
