Today marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day! Veterans from that war were just teenagers when they landed in Normandy and today, they are in their 90’s. For the 80th Anniversary of this invasion, there is a good chance there will be no more veterans alive to salute personally. Please honor those living and those that gave their lives in this battle.
The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Code-named Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the liberation of German-occupied France (and later western Europe) from Nazi control, and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.
