June 6th D-Day WW2

June 6th, 1944 156,000 men from Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States landed on Sword, Gold, Juno, Omaha and Utah beaches to begin reclaiming Europe from Germany. 4,000 of those men died that day, sacrificing themselves to begin the end of the Nazi empire. The landing was actually supposed to come on June 5th but bad weather prevented the landing. We honor those that died, and those that lived, in their effort to bring peace to the world.

How to celebrate – Visit Normandy in France. Read the accounts of the landings. Thank those few Veterans of World War 2 that are still alive.
