75 years ago today, D-Day the 6th of June, Allied forces endured unimaginable death and destruction and landed on the beaches of France, spelling the beginning of the end of Hitler.
Today, it’s hard for us to believe the sacrifice of those who were serving their country on those stretches of beach. At Omaha Beach (one of five landing beaches), 84% of those that landed in the first wave became casualties. Casualties in the second wave were 56%. Yet they fought on.
Thank you to the ‘Greatest Generation’. May we always remember, and be worthy of, their sacrifice.
