The 74th Anniversary of D-Day

D Day invasion
On June 6th, 1944 General Eisenhower ordered the Allied invasion of France at Normandy.

Today is the 74th Anniversary of D-Day.  Between 4,000 and 5,000 Allied soldiers died that day in June 1944, no one is really sure.  We know that many of them did not even make it onto dry land, and thousands more would die in the days immediately following.  Take a minute to remember who answered the call and did their duty in the face of horrific violence. Their bravery and sacrifice should never be forgotten.
