Operation Overlord, (also known as D-Day), began on June 6, 1944, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region.  The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history and required extensive planning.

Today is the anniversary of D-Day. Let us always remember the brave soldiers who stormed the beaches in Normandy to liberate the world from an unthinkable evil. Brave soldiers deserve to be remembered.
