The graphic above is the mast head for the Trenton Times as it appeared on D-Day, the 6th of June, 1944. I was only 11 years old but clearly recall the excitement and at the same time fear, that the adults who had boys in the fight experienced. Prayer is schools was a given back then, and I clearly recall a school auditorium assembly and Miss Emily Reynolds, Principal of Kuser School, leading us in prayer for the safety of our boys. This morning when I awoke I said a prayer for them, and this evening when I go to bed, there will be a prayer for those brave fighting men who gave their all on Normandy beach. The graphic below the Times header is an ad 1 month later on July 6, 1944 when Americans everywhere flocked to the movies to see the latest Movietone, Pathe' or Universal Newsreel for graphic movies of the conflict. The featured movie at the RKO Capitol on July 6, 1944 featured an incredible cast of Hollywood stars in the movie,
"Follow the Boys."
