Day Ninety-Eight

Notes: For the past 97 days, I have been posting cards in the order that I found them in the box.  This card, however, I held back until now.  I think if you look at the date up at the top of the post, you'll see why.  Today is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings on the beaches of Normandy, France.  The Allied invasion began in the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, and involved over 160,000 troops and over 5,000 ships.
