REMEMBER JUNE 6! AND REMEMBER TO SHARE!

REMEMBERING D-DAY

REMEMBER JUNE 6! AND REMEMBER TO SHARE!

Yesterday was June 6, a day all of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT hope all Americans remember and will never forget. Why? For so many reasons. Let’s begin…

On June 6, 1944 (Tuesday), the Normandy landings (code-named Operation Neptune) began, and were the landing operations of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Termed D-Day, and the largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the liberation of German-occupied northwestern Europe from Nazi control, and contributed to the Allied victory on the Western Front. And the beginning of the end to World War II.

The amphibious landings were preceded by extensive aerial and naval bombardment and an airborne assault—the landing of 24,000 American, British, and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight. Allied infantry and armored divisions began landing on the coast of France at 06:30. The target 50-mile (80 km) stretch of the Normandy coast was divided into five sectors: Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword Beach. It was an incredible battle. And an incredible amount of valiant Allied soldiers lost their lives during it.

We remember this day every year, and numerous ceremonies are held every year in military cemeteries throughout France and America to honor these fallen heroes. They fought and gave their lives for the freedom of Europe and all the world. They deserve our remembering them; they deserve our homage and reverent respect. For, because of them and all the American and allied veterans who fought and died during World War II, do we enjoy the freedom and bountiful lives we live today.

So we hope you join us in our homage to them, and look forward to your acknowledgements and comments here.
