It had only been a week since Mohammad Ali Acampong finished renovating his house when bombs and bullets struck Marawi City.

On June 6, 1944, the Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, to begin freeing northwestern Europe from under the boot of Nazism. Although it was a decisive Allied victory that changed the course of World War II, thousands of courageous young men gave their lives on those beaches in northern France. The U.S. National D-Day Memorial Foundation has verified that 2,499 Americans and 1,914 from other Allied nations were killed on that day — a total of 4,413 Allied deaths. War photographers accompanied the infantrymen as they disembarked from landing crafts and ran headfirst into enemy fire. Pictures of that pivotal battle are a sober reminder of the courage, resolve and selflessness needed to fight fascism and the debt subsequent generations owe to the GI Generation. Today, across the globe, men and women honor the sacrifice made by a few good men to liberate Europe and defeat fascism.

A group of divers saved a distressed turtle from a slow death after untangling it from a large clump of fish netting. Theresa Guise, 60, from Indianapolis, took the photos of her fellow divers coming the turtle's rescue. She said: "We were looking for blue whales in our boat when we discovered a large clump of fishnet and other material. Peter de Maagt and Alex Mustard, my fellow scuba divers, and I got in the water to look at it and found a turtle trapped. Alex held the turtle so that it could reach the surface and easily breathe, and this also prevented it from fighting the rescue - it was panicking and thrashing about, clearly frightened. Peter used a knife to cut the turtle out of the netting and then Alex guided the turtle back to safety." (Caters News)

These mind-bending masterpieces are created by an artist with a unique talent for combining different jigsaw puzzles into bizarre mash-ups. Whether it be piglets with the eyes of frogs, cows blended with construction vehicles or toy bears mixed with beer cans, no combination is off-limits for the creative eye of jigsaw fanatic Tim Klein. Klein, from Vancouver, Wash., came up with the concept for his one-of-a-kind works after discovering that many mass-produced 500-piece jigsaw puzzles have the same cut pattern, allowing their subjects to be merged in bizarre ways. He said: "For any pair of 500-piece puzzles with the same cut pattern, there are literally trillions of possible ways to intermingle their pieces, so the possibilities are endless." (Caters News)
