Thousands of brave men and women undertook what was at that time the largest amphibious operation in military history. All in the hopes of freeing Europe (but in reality the whole world) from the terror of Hitler’s Third Reich. Thankfully the troops and their leaders prepared for and overcame the challenges of that day.
We’re losing these veterans at a startling pace. Please, please thank any veteran of any armed conflict for their service, but today, especially WW II veterans. They are truly the “Greatest Generation”.
