65th Anniversary of D-Day

Tomorrow is the 65th Anniversary of D-Day. We wanted to take a minute to remember all of the brave members of the various military branches who on this day 65 years ago landed on the beaches of Normandy, France.

The military engagement that followed has long been considered the turning point of World War II in the European theater. Troops left France and continued on through Europe right into Germany. Our military liberated millions while toppling the Nazi troops. There are more veterans of the historic D-Day invasion than any other engagement in WWII.

We should always honor the men and women who fight to protect our freedoms, but tomorrow we must all remember those who fought and sacrificed their lives on June 6, 1944.
