Remembering D-Day

d-day1

On the 70th anniversary of D-Day, a variety of news and history sites posted retrospectives on the attack at Normandy. I wanted to share some of those stories and links.

The courage exhibited during the D-Day invasion was one of the most stirring moments in modern warfare. Incredibly brave soldiers stormed the beach knowing they would most likely die. Yet, they did their duty and changed the world. We are all free because of their resolve and iron will. Let us always remember their sacrifice.

Hope you find these links helpful.
