Over the weekend, I was thinking about a client of mine who passed away several years ago. I never knew his history until his son mentioned around the time of the 60th Anniversary of D-Day that his Dad had landed at Omaha Beach.

However, the vision of the kid, plucked from a Nebraska Farm, standing on the beach in Normandy or trudging across Northern France in the rain has never left me.
