61st Anniversary of D-Day

Sixty-one years ago today, the invasion of Normandy began. Courageous men from America, Britain, and Canada fought the waves and stormed the beaches in order to free France and Europe from the Nazis.

I studied the Invasion of Normandy very extensively in my history classes, particularly WWII, with Dr. Balzarini. My essay on the final exam was on the topic of "Why Normandy?"

I am always amazed that these men were able to do such a thing. They deserve all the honor and glory that we can give them. We must never forget them and the courage it took to even get in the boats to go ashore. God bless them!
