Operation Overlord/D-Day – June 6, 1944

by | Jun 6, 2013

Take some time today to remember those brave men who made the ultimate sacrifice as part of the D-Day Normandy invasion in World War II.

“This operation is not being planned with any alternatives. This operation is planned as a victory, and that’s the way it’s going to be. We’re going down there, and we’re throwing everything we have into it, and we’re going to make it a success.”

–General Dwight D. Eisenhower

Remember the beaches… Omaha, Utah, Gold, Juno, Sword… remember Pointe Du Hoc.

Remember them all… and thank them in your silent hearts… just for a moment… for they saved your world that day.

All gave some, some gave all.

“As our boat touched sand and the ramp went down, I became a visitor to hell.”
