Default The Longest Day...

Tomorrow, June 6th marks the 80th Anniversary of the allied landings at Normandy. It is hard to comprehend the scope of this heroic effort and the impact it had on so many people.

Lest we forget

A total of 4,414 Allied troops were killed on D-Day itself, including 2,501 Americans. More than 5,000 were wounded. In the ensuing Battle of Normandy, 73,000 Allied forces were killed and 153,000 wounded.

Unbelievable sacrifices made by so many.

Even 20,000 French civilians were killed, mostly by allied fire into villages where Germans were hiding out.
