Sunday Funnies #2: Charles M. Schulz pays homage to D-Day

Monday, June 6th is D-Day, the day the Allies stormed the beach at Normandy, finally entering France, a major turning point in their ultimate victory.  (see my post on Remember D-Day: the Plan, the Invasion, Survivor Stories by Ronald J. Drez)

Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip, was a veteran himself and always made it a point to honor his fellow vets whenever the occasion called for it.  Here are his 1994 strips for D-Day, starring my muse, Snoopy. You can click each one to make it easier to read.

  1. Great post Alex.
    I don't think today's generations realize what a momentous event that was.

  2. I am afraid you are right about that. It is especially sad when you think of how many young people were killed before they even reached to beach at Normandy.

  3. Thanks for commemorating these.
