Never forget.

June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end on June 6, the Allies gained a foot- hold in Normandy. The D-Day cost was high -more than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded — but more than 100,000 Soldiers began the march across Europe to defeat Hitler. — US Army.mil

President Reagan’s timeless tribute at Normandy:

D-Day vet: “We made a difference.”

Amen and God bless each and every one of our brave D-Day vets who served and sacrificed.

    The Jacksonville Florida Times Union newspaper made no mention of DDay today. When I spoke to the editor today he stated it was a newspaper and an anniversary was not news worthy.

    Oh, President Reagan, where art thou?
