June 6th - Seventy Years Ago Today...

...is a day that humanity should never forget because it was the day that began a push, like none before it or after it, to liberate Europe from the Nazi horde and to save the world from being overrun by them. Today is the anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy or D-Day (as it is widely known). It was the allied invasion of mainland Europe that ultimately led to the defeat of Germany and the Axis forces in WWII. Many died before that day and many after it but that one day was and remains a day that changed history and a day that was bathed in the blood of allied, and especially American, heroes. More American troops, were killed that day than from any other allied nation - far more than half of the casualties were from the USA. Think about them today, remember them, honor them and their memory, teach your children about them so they can teach their children and their children's children. They were true heroes that day, they really did save the world.

All the best,
Glenn B
