      • Joe Zimbicki: In My Own Words


        from Veteran Voices of Pittsburgh / Added

        Joe Zimbicki grew up in Heidelberg, Pennsylvania. During the Great Depression his dad was a moonshiner and spent time in prison. As soon as he could, Joe began working to support his nine brothers and sisters. Shipping off to a CCC camp in the northern woods near Williamsport was his salvation--and introduction to Army life. After being drafted, Joe trained in Texas, California, and then New Jersey, where he shipped out to Europe as part of the infantry. He joined the 90th Division, landing at Utah Beach on D-Day +2. "It took a couple of miles inland before we encountered any resistance," Joe says, but the dangers were everywhere. While digging a foxhole in a French farmer's field, a German machine gunner found Joe in his sights. After being shot he was sent to recover in London and then sent again to the front, where he was wounded by shrapnel. While recovering he was placed in a military police unit guarding General Patton's plane. "We went everywhere he went," Joe recalls. "I never spoke to him and he never spoke to me, but I saluted him a lot." This interview is a production of the Veteran Voices of Pittsburgh Oral History Initiative, in partnership with the Veterans Breakfast Club. It was recorded January 19, 2015 at the Heinz History Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Interviewer: Todd DePastino. http://veteranvoicesofpittsburgh.com/ http://veteransbreakfastclub.com/

            70 jaar D-Day 1944 - 2014 JWR Wat een toeval. Ik kwam op 7 juni 2014 met mijn paramotor terugvliegen van Pointe du Hoc via Omaha Beach naar Arromanches le Bains. Boven de uiterste west kant van Omaha Beach, niet ver van Vierville sur Mer was ik er vanuit de lucht getuige van, dat de tekst "Wij gaan trouwen" op het strand geschreven werd. Meteen omgedraaid en mijn GoPro camera op mijn helm aangezet. Wat bijzonder! Terug in Nederland heb ik deze video in elkaar gezet, nog niet wetende, dat ik in contact zou komen met Wilma en Joop. Zij vertelden me het bijzondere verhaal over hun voorgenomen huwelijk op 6 juni 2015. Dit werd "V-Day". Ze wilden de video graag tonen op hun huwelijk. Dat vond ik een hele eer. Ik werd gepakt door het verhaal en heb voor Wilma en Joop een persoonlijk tintje aan de video toegevoegd.

                    Airborne Commander is a solitaire deck building game from designer Aaron Lauster. You are in charge of the aerial assault on D-Day. You'll play cards from your deck to defeat Axis units and take key objectives to earn points. You are outnumbered and outgunned, but the real enemy is chaos. The more disorganized your deck becomes, the harder it will be to mount a successful attack. Each firefight forces you into key decisions. Survive long enough, though, and you might earn the Medal of Honor. Kickstarter launching March 2015. For more information visit stratamaxgames.com
