I got to say I find any stamps provoking us to remember is a good thing. With things in the way of the World today and what these poor blighters went through to stop tyranny and for what?

VERDICT

COMMEMORATIVE WORTH 5 / 5 Indeed!

QUALITY OF DESIGN 5 / 5 I think they cover the scene pretty well.

WOW FACTOR 3 / 5 Not sure there is a wow factor without shock and awe.

I think the issue is very well done indeed, although I can understand the disappointment of the family who lost their dad's well-known picture on one of the stamps because of design requirements.

Darned if you do, darned if you don't, ya know?

Actually, one of the more memorable memes I saw on the Internet around American Memorial Day weekend, was this:

"YOUR DAY AT THE BEACH... picture of crowds, sand, sea and sun

BROUGHT TO YOU BY THEIR DAY AT THE BEACH... picture of D-Day landings."

Well said, whoever thought of it.

HI Carmen nice to hear from you, yes I agree it is hard to approach the subject and even using the stamps in the first place as the general public are not aware you have to ask for these specifically to buy and use and only for the month. The girls used to say although they were kept in the back of the folders to sell but basically it was up to their discretion to use them. The only time they asked the public was for the Christmas issues.
