Anniversary of Normandy invasion

Today is the 65th anniversary of the greatest invasion in military history--the day when Allied Forces stormed the beaches of Omaha, Juno and Sword at Normandy on the French coast, beginning the effort which would ultimately lead to the defeat of Germany in World War II.

Let's give thanks today to those U.S. "citizen soldiers"--those many men who left jobs, schools, wives, children and families to fight to save the world from tyranny. May their stories not be forgotten.
