Today is D-Day, do you know what that means?

Since today is D-Day, I think everyone should take some time to understand what took place on this day.  This is the day that the allied invasion to reclaim France and engage Hitler on European soil began.  It was a huge strategic development that included deception, bravery, and a relentless perseverance.   Here is a great article on the horrors of the first wave at Omaha Beach.  I can’t even begin to understand the fear that must have gripped those men or the shocking things they witnessed.  I might have to go watch Saving Private Ryan tonight.
