D-Day. 70 years ago today a young Bonfield farmboy ELWOOD "BUCK" FOLTZ (Dads cousin) was a part of the landing at Normandy Beach. He rarely spoke of it but after his wake of few of his private, personal and painful stories were shared by his brothers. The incoming fire was so bad at one point that while he was facedown on the beach he reached down and pulled dead bodies up around him as a shield. The sand and the water were red with flowing blood. When I asked him once about it he said there was no f-ing movie or anything else that could show the real truth of it. Thanks to all of them for what they did.
