D-DAY 2014

Seventy years ago 24,000 airborne troops from Canada, Britain, and the USA parachuted over the Normandy Peninsula to seize strategic positions from the undermanned German occupation army. That morning over 150,000 soldiers embarked from the greatest invasion naval force ever assembled in history. The attack caught the Nazis off-guard and by the evening the Allies had solidified the hold on the beachheads. Over 4000 lost their lives in the attack. More would die in the weeks to come, but Paris was liberated on two months later on August 19, 1944.

Their sacrifice for the cause of freedom shall be remembered forever.

By those who knew them and those who refuse forget their heroism
