Walt & Mickey in Chicago

Today marks the 65th anniversary of the D-Day landings, without the couragous spirit of those who went into battle that day we would not enjoy the freedoms we have today. According to some accounts MICKEY MOUSE was the pass word used by troops on D-Day.

Hardly a surprise when by 1944 Mickey was so much a part of international culture.

Here is a photo of Walt and Mickey arriving in Chicago on a visit to The Chicago Century Of Progress Exposition on July 18, 1933.
