Thank you for recognizing the service and sacrifice made by so many brave Americans 75 years ago on D-Day. I have to say I think the image you chose to place on the front page of the June 6, 2019 edition of the HDR was insensitive and in very poor taste. Of all the archival photos available why on earth would you select one with a swastika front and center?

I understand the point you are illustrating but considering how many who died that day were Jewish, African Americans, and other persecuted people, this was a very poor decision by the editorial staff of your paper. In the future, please consider how an image like this effects people before choosing something with such a provocative symbol.
