Remembering D-Day’s 80th anniversary

Thursday, June 6, is the 80th anniversary of one of the most important dates in our country’s history: D-Day, the largest amphibious assault in human history.

That day, 2,501 American soldiers died as General Dwight D. Eisenhower commanded the Allied Forces, and 73,000 Allied soldiers and sailors died in the Battle of Normandy!

Only 66 veterans of the U.S. forces are still alive. We need to honor them and their comrades. The Battle of Normandy was the start of our victorious war to defeat Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich.

We must never forget the service to our country and the entire FREE World of our brave men and women!!
