A 90-year-old Normandy veteran has released a moving folk ballad, and he's only gone and reached number one in Amazon’s music chart. Obviously he is not just any 90-year-old, a D-Day veteran who's out with a tribute to that fateful day in 1944. Jim Radford was just 15 during World War II's D-Day landings—the youngest known D-Day veteran. The ballad was inspired by his experience of working on a ship back on June 6, 1944. The song's lyrics are about men who "stormed the gates of hell" and "died upon that blood-soaked sand".
After Fifty Living™ was founded by Jo-Anne Lema, a genuine Boomer and member of the 50+ generation. As she likes to say, “Our enormous generation is charting new territory – we’re healthier, better educated, and more financially fit than any other generation at this time. And, as we march through history, 110 million strong – unique, new issues are developing. It’s exciting to be a part of the development and growth of AfterFiftyLiving.com. This is a historic solution for a historic generation.”
Jo-Anne spent many years in the financial and operations side of higher education after having received a doctorate in education management and administration from Harvard, and an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University. Launching out on her own, though, has been the fulfillment of a life dream. Jo-Anne believes that “AfterFiftyLiving™ will delight its visitors, catalyze its partners, and will significantly benefit those who engage it.”
Residing in New England along with her husband of 35+ years, she never ceases to brag about her two children and 4 grandkids!
