Sixty-five years ago today, my late father, Felix A. Cizewski, was in the 45th Signal Company, 45th Infantry Division on occupation duty near Munich, Germany

He kept his copy of the 1st anniversary of D-Day commemorative issue of Stars and Stripes Magazine,

All eight pages have been posted on my family history website.

Felix’s copy has been donated to the Illinois Holocaust and Education Center in Skokie.

On the other side of the world,  my late father-in-law, Ralph E. Robinson, on Landing Ship Medium 34 continued delivering supplies to troops in the Philippines and training with the Army for the invasion of Japan scheduled for about September, 1945, in about three months.
