There I am, leafing through a Peanuts cartoon book. I turn the page and am completely caught off guard.
The Peanuts cartoon for June 6, 1944 is not an illustration. It is two photographs. One of a few soldiers, one of Ike talking to a group of soldiers. On the right lower corner of the main panel is Snoopy, in uniform.
I am not a connesseur of Peanuts and do not know if Schultz commemorated any other events with photographs or if this was a one-timer.
Sure was moving. Anyone know the back-story if there is one, aside from the obvious ? Did he have family involved that day? Suffer a loss?
