We went to Europe last summer and took a day tour of Normandy. While at the US Cemetary I took several photos of individual markers and tried to research the names when we got home. I was only able to find information on one of the airmen, Lt. Jay V Thomson. I put what I was able to find into a quick collage. The text on the left came from his home town newspaper; the right was from his flight leader.
Finding his picture made it personal to me. I hope we never forget the sacrifices these young men and women made for us.
