D-Day, June 6th 1944. More than 160,000 allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy France to fight against the Nazi’s of Germany. Many men lost their lives this day fighting for freedom. This was the largest amphibious assault led to this day. We honor and remember the greatest sacrifice that was made for our freedom. Allied forces fought bravely and ferociously to establish a foothold through the fighting. June 6th, 1944 was the beginning of the end of a war.
“Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well-trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely…I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.”
– General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander
