Above Omaha Beach

Longues-sur-Mer+B-17
Above Omaha Beach at Longues-sur-Mer

On the morning of June 6, 1944, the small road along the cliffs was a hive of activity with trucks racing to resupply the defenders. With US and Allied troops scaling the cliffs and naval guns targeting the area, the defenders were defeated.
The Allies were able to secure a foothold in France. My cousin co-piloted a B-17 outfitted for the invasion with machine guns, lots of ammo, and no bombs. If it had a swastika on it, Mike and his buddies shot it full of holes. Their hit list contained cars and trucks, tanks, trains, troops, aircraft, fortifications, armor, field artillery, and anything which looked ‘good’.
