Operation Husky was the invasion of Sicily by the Allies during World War Two. General Patton’s forces fought for and secured beach heads at Licata and Gela. The initial assault occurred on 9 July 1943, this year marks 80 years. (coincidentally July 9 is my son’s birthday).
To my fellow US service members I say “Grazie per la liberta!”
To those who died to free my oppressed island, it is a debt that can never be repaid but will always to be remembered!!
Gela is two and a half hours from our home in Casteldaccia, in the next two posts I will highlight the two separate beach landings. While at each beach head I collected sand from both, which will be displayed at our Chicagoland Combined Veterans Museum.
