Today is the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, one of the most significant events in history. It is the day the Allies stormed the beaches of Normandy. It saved the world from Nazism.

The Western Allies of World War II launched the largest amphibious invasion in history when they assaulted Normandy, located on the northern coast of France, on 6 June 1944. The invaders were able to establish a beachhead as part of Operation Overlord after a successful “D-Day,” the first day of the invasion.

These men were the most gallant of men and many lost their lives but even as many fell, others moved forward, never hesitating, as they took back the beaches of Normandy.
