Remembering D-Day

"We will accept nothing less than full victory." 
General Dwight D. Eisenhower

Today June 6th, 2016 marks the 72nd Anniversary of D-Day. Known as “the beginning of the end of war in Europe,” D-Day occurred when American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches stretching along 50 miles of France’s Normandy region. Troops landed under heavy fire on mined and obstacle covered beaches. The result of this day was the allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany’s control. As a major event in history, it is important to keep the memory of this day alive.
