Remembering D-Day

Sixty-seven years ago today, 160,000 Allied troops, supported by 5,000 ships and 13,000 assaulted a 50-mile stretch of heavily fortified French coastline to wrest Continental Europe from the Third Reich. More than 9,000 Allied solders were killed or wounded, but the day ended with a beachhead established on the periphery of Nazi-dominated Western Europe.

Let us not forget the sacrifices that these soldiers, sailors, and airmen made to secure a global peace.

Because of their efforts, they rescued the world from tyranny and ultimately helped it avoid a global war for over six decades.
