Remembering D-Day

Sixty-six years ago, at 6:30 AM, 6 June 1944 the Alllied invasion of France commenced in Normandy to free Nazi occupied Europe.

160,000 troops landed on the five assault sectors now well-known by the world as Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword. 

They were supported by 195,700 naval and merchant personnel.

  1. This is a very nice post. My father was on Utah Beach and is still alive living near me. We all need to remember their service for our freedom. Thanks!
