A "D-Day" Tribute: June 6, 1944

As you know, we are divorce lawyers in Augusta, Georgia. I am also a former federal (and state) prosecutor in Augusta. Currently, I am a divorce attorney and criminal defense attorney in Richmond and Columbia County, Georgia.

Maybe some of you assumed that the above caption, which refers to "D-Day," meant that this is "divorce day." Actually, most of you probably know that "D-Day" refers to that important date, June 6, 1944, during World War II, when the allies landed on the coast of Normandy, France in the largest amphibious invasion in world history.

My late father was one of many brave Americans who fought on that morning at Omaha Beach. He was a medic and a member of the fighting Seabees. One can only imagine the horrors which he and others experienced there, sixty-seven years ago today. On this date, and every day, I am very grateful and very proud of him and all the other brave young men who fought for our freedom. We must never forget their devotion and sacrifices for all of us.


  1. This is a moving tribute, Hays. Well done, and a special thanks to your late father for all he did for all of us.
