WWII pictures that are quite interesting.
1944 ——— 2014

Now this is an incredible use of technology. Like traveling back in time!

Directions:

Just click on the photo anywhere and it will become 2014. Click again and it will go back to 1944.

Scroll down for next photo.

Nope. But anyway. Kudos to the vets that helped us us avoid a hundred years of darkness and murder. It was the fight of civilization against genocide and mindless hatred. None of us today understand the suffering that was
dropped on the world by the Axis ppowers. Very few of those vets yet live. GBI was a 17 year old as I understand when he joined and he now has essentially died of old age. Thank you, thank you WWII vets for saving the world! My father, who I lost in 1980, was among you, who lost an eye trying to save other soldiers in a mine field.

Thank you, thank you, we can never thank you enough!

There's a word being blocked by the filter. Like the words s c r i p t and m a r q u e e. But can't guess what it is.
This looks like it could be the same article you describe though:

Dad landed in Omaha beach on D Day plus 4 days. He was in 165th Engineers and they were eventually assigned directly to Patton’s HQ. so he traveled across Europe building bridges ahead of Patton’s army. Oh such stories I have been told. Talking to Ike, seeing Patton in lead tank, and opening the doors at Daukau prision to free the living dead. Yet my dad lived such a simple life till the age of 87.
Thank you Joe for always telling your stories. It always reminds me of other stories. That was the Greatest Generation.

Fantastic photos. I didn't get to Europe until several months after the invasion. Devastation every where. Was amazing how people could live in bombed our homes and buildings.
