They protected our freedoms; now it is our turn.
Yesterday, June 6, 2021, marked 77 years since the D-Day Invasion at Normandy. As memories of that fateful day dim, we must take steps to remember. We have a duty to honor the men who fought bravely, and we must learn from their resolve.
D-Day’s hard-fought success became a defining moment that turned World War II toward eventual Allied victory. General Dwight Eisenhower headed the military effort as the Supreme Commander of Allied Forces. Alongside British and Canadian counterparts, he spent a year planning the greatest amphibious invasion. They had one opportunity to get it right.
