Didn’t know that about Marlene Dietrich, thanks! V/R, Jack
She made a point of performing as close to the front lines as she could. Didn’t care for the Nazis.
Omaha Beach was a humbling place, a pretty beach with German pillboxes that enfilade the beach at the Vierville draw. On the US right flank, where I stood would have been enfiladed by three dug-in MGs and an 88, not to mention positions on the bluffs or in the draw. The sand contains minute particles of shrapnel.
This too shall pass
