D Day … 75th Anniversary

It is difficult to believe that it was 75 years ago today that Allied Forces under the command of General Dwight D Eisenhower landed on the beaches of Normandy France.  Those of us who are of a certain age may have had fathers, family members or knew friends who had family members that were involved in Operation Overlord.  Many of those involved were 18-22 year olds, their sacrifice helped to liberated Europe, empty the concentration camps and eliminate the Nazi regime.  Take a minute out of today and remember all who participated  – forces from more than 10 Allied countries were involved.
