June 6, 1944 - D-Day: The Invasion of Normandy

In preparation for selling my mother's home, I have been combing through it looking for things that needed to be saved.  Recently I came across a small gem.  It is a small U.S. Government issue notebook in which my father recorded important events in his WWII US Navy service.  As I was thinking of the upcoming anniversary of the invasion of Normandy, I started to wonder what HE was doing on the other side of the world at the time of the invasion.  His initial records in his log book read:


  • April 28 1944 - Left San Francisco Calif.
  • May 5 - Crossed Equator
  • May 9 - Crossed Date Line
  • May 13 - arrive Noumea New Caladonia (sic)
    ........
  • May 31 Frichshaven
  • June 10 - Left Frichshaven - assigned LCI-28
If you don't know what a Landing Craft Infantry (LCI) is, take a look here at the USS Landing Craft site.  

ARMY.MIL provides an excellent overview of D-Day,

On June 6, I took some time to stop and remember both my father's service and those who were at Normandy that day.

Fall Semester Starts Monday!

For the first time I am teaching HRM 666 as a totally online class.  I am both nervous about it and excited.  I am pretty computer savvy and love trying new things and experimenting.  I hope the class is as good or better than the "live" version.  If you are IN my online class, you might want to follow me on Twitter - search for NBereman.
