Today, we remember the heroes who fought on the beaches of Normandy, France. Many sacrificed their lives on that day, and in the coming days. There are only a few days in the history of man that one can pinpoint down to the hour when the world changed, D-Day is one of those days. That day, June 6th, 1944 General Eisenhower ordered the Allied invasion of France at Normandy. It marked a turning point in the war that the Axis powers would never fully recover from, and lead to their defeat the following year.
Hundreds of millions of people live free today because of what those soldiers and others like them did to ensure an Allied victory in WWII. Three-quarters of a century later, we still remember the brave men who stormed those beaches for our freedom and what their countless acts of bravery mean to us today.
God bless those men.
