You pull as hard as possible and try to shake yourself free. The German patrol draws ever closer. You hear a small tear and keep shaking and finally, with a massive tear you are free. The Germans however seem to have noticed this effort and send a cascade of bullets your way. You try to lie as flat as possible, but it is not enough, you just made too much noise.

You take your final breath on June 5, 1944, 11:37 PM. Your mother receives the letter in the mail two weeks from now. You were one of thousands who gave their life on D-Day for a better world.
