75th Anniversary of D-Day

In the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, an armada of 7,000 ships carrying 160,000 Allied troops stormed the Normandy beaches of Nazi-occupied France. Up until then the Allied forces had suffered serious defeats, yet D-Day, as the invasion was called, spelled the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany and the Third Reich.  June 6, 2019 marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day.  The National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA is hosting “The Final Salute”: a gathering of veterans and the general public for reflection and remembrance – the story of ordinary people in extraordinary moments.  If you'd like to learn more about these moments, take a look at one of these books.
