D-Day Remembered.

Click here to read more about this historic date.


June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. General Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” More than 5,000 Ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end on June 6, the Allies gained a foot- hold in Normandy. The D-Day cost was high -more than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded -- but more than 100,000 Soldiers began the march across Europe to defeat Hitler.

Thank you for remembering D-Day since Obama chooses to think its unimportant.

Thank you for your kind words.

The courage these men, both fallen and not, gave that day is the epitome of what makes America great.

To insure our country has a proud future, we must never forget our proud past.
