On This Day: June 6th, 1944
I posted last year about the commemoration of the Normandy landings on this date, which brought freedom back to the shores of occupied Europe. They would lead, within a year, to the downfall of Nazi Germany and the end of that particularly vicious and savage tyranny.
I don't have anything more to add this year, so I'll let last year's post and pictures speak for themselves. I'll just say: remember those who took part. There are relatively few of them left now, and they grow fewer every year. If you know one, please thank him for all of us.
