People Seriously Want a D-Day Google from Google?

Yesterday was the 66th anniversary of D-Day, the landing at Normandy. There were about 10,000 casualties that day on the allied side, 3,000 or so which were fatal. But yet people want a Google Doodle, logo, for the day.

There were a few posts from upset people in the Google Web Search Help forums with complaints. But the truth is, Google said they try not to do Doodles for events that are not light hearted. Google said, "we try to be sensitive that a doodle is not the most appropriate way to recognize certain events, especially those that are more somber in nature."

Last year, people were upset that Google posted a Tetris logo on D-Day. I get that, maybe not show any logo on a day like that no matter what. Last year, Bing even had a theme for D-Day but this year, they opted not to.

But now that you can customize your Google home page, you can make your own D-Day theme, if you really want to. I grabbed a free image from Wikipedia and made this:

Google D-Day

Personally, it doesn't seem right to me but that is me.
