Lest we Forget.

At this time of year in the UK (November 11th) we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the defence of freedom. We remember all those who have served their country not only from the UK but also the United States of America. Especially those from the 8th & 9th USAAF and those who came to these shores in preparation for D Day. I have visited a number of cemeteries and memorials over the past few years both in the UK and Europe from Slapton Sands in Devon to Foy in Belgium.

We Will Remember Them……..

Hi I'm James Findon I live in Warwickshire, UK and my main employment is as a Maintenance Supervisor for a Global Real Estate Company. I have previously worked for the civil service on a United States Air Force Base in the UK and this developed my keen interest in American Military Awards and military history. I regularly contribute articles to military forums on the internet especially US Awards and equipment. I have visited some of Europe's battlefields and US Cemeteries including Normandy and Bastogne. I hope you'll enjoy reading my Blog as I've a passion for all thing US Military and for my sins I'm now an American Football convert, Green Bay being my team. Enjoy!
