So how did you spend your 30th birthday?
As the years whisk by, most of us no longer remember. But Cliff Morgan, who would have been 100 years old this month, surely never forgot his 30th. After all, he’d just landed on the shore of Normandy, on France’s north coast.
The queen of England, the president of the United States and a world of dignitaries came to Omaha Beach to honor the sacrifices made there 70 years earlier when 150,000 troops landed at Normandy in 1944. My father-in-law, U.S. Army Capt. George Clifton “Cliff” Morgan, was there somewhere in the middle of it.
