Thursday Doors: D-Day Invasion 75th Anniversary – Sir Winston Churchill


It is the 75th anniversary of the WWII D-Day Invasion. On this day the allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, France. American, British, and Canadian troops were among those who fought in the greatest seaborne assault in history.

Sir Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister at that time, planned part of the D-Day invasion while aboard the RMS Queen Mary. The luxury liner was converted and refitted into a troop ship during WWII.

The door in this post is that of the “Churchill Suite”; this is the actual suite Churchill stayed in when he was on the ship.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
