June 6th, 1944 is a day Americans will never forget. It's right up there with 9/11 as one of the most infamous days in US history. The day in World War II where Allied forces invaded northern France by storming the beaches in Normandy. THIS is why they're called the greatest generation. Also don't forget about General Dwight D. Eisenhower's famous speech:
Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force:
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hope and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened.
He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944! The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!
I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle.
We will accept nothing less than full victory!
Good luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
"We Will Never Forget" #DDay
