A gunnery has been discovered, buried beneath a metre of iron-rich Normandy
soil. It was likely part of a ruse on the part of the Axis forces: a fake gunnery was also built, less conspicuously, and it
took the abuse. It was forgotten -- or the memory at least buried by the locals and those who fought there -- until recently. Now it appears to explain some puzzles about Bloody Omaha

Pipe-bomb suspect sent campus paper a suicidal manifesto
The Badger Herald received a letter from pipe bomb suspect Luke John Helder postmarked Omaha, Nebraska, Friday, May 3, 2002. In the letter, signed by Helder, he said he is willing to die for his cause and threatened the lives of others. "I will die/change in the end for this, but that's ok, hahaha paradise awaits!" the letter said. "I'm dismissing a few individuals from reality, to change all of you for the better, surely you can understand my logic."

D-Day was 57 years ago yesterday. It was 16 years before an article in the Atlantic
finally provided Americans an unvarnished account of the carnage that was Omaha Beach that day. I'm in awe of what these 19-year-olds went through.
