    The anniversary of the Battle of Midway was earlier this week as well. Both battles pivotal turning points in the war.

    Thank you to all who served and gave their lives so I may have the freedoms I have today.

    Default 69th Anniversary of D-Day

    6 Minutes of Powerful Historic Footage to Commemorate the 69th Anniversary of D-Day.


    It has been 69 years since the beaches of Normandy were stormed by Allied soldiers on what’s famously known as “D-Day.”

    A full day of ceremonies, including fireworks, concerts and marches, is planned across Normandy, France, Thursday in honor of the 150,000 troops, mainly US, British and Canadian, who risked or gave their lives on June 6, 1944, in the liberation of German-occupied western Europe during World War II.

    D-Day.org describes the scene for soldiers at Normandy on that fateful day as “they found themselves in hell,” with no natural protection for nearly 200 yards when they first landed on the beach

    “When it was over, the Allied Forces had suffered nearly 10,000 casualties; more than 4,000 were dead,” D-Day.org stated. “Yet somehow, due to planning and preparation, and due to the valor, fidelity, and sacrifice of the Allied Forces, Fortress Europe had been breached.”

    To commemorate the historic event, the National Rifle Association’s Life of Duty TV last year released a condensed version of a 1969 film that used first-hand footage.

    Considering the date, check out the historic piece to mark the 69th anniversary of “Operation Overlord”:
