WE REMEMBER AND HONOR THOSE WHO FOUGHT ON D-DAY:
On June 6, 1944, the course of world history changed while most Americans slept soundly in their beds thousands of miles away.
Dubbed “Operation Neptune” then but forever-since known as simply “D-Day,” Allied troops on this day launched the largest sea invasion ever undertaken before or since on the beaches of Normandy, France.
More than 9,000 allied troops were killed or wounded in the invasion, but by the end of the fight, Allied troops had regained a foothold in Europe that would eventually lead to the defeat of Hitler’s army.
