D-Day

D-Day by C.L. Harmon

Wouldn’t it be a remarkable event if 5,000 ships came to the rescue of people who were being oppressed?  What if those ships were carrying 150,000 troops who were willing to die to ensure that those people could be free and safe?  Now imagine 10,000 aircraft flying above those ships with men willing to sacrifice everything for what is right. It is an awesome vision and on June 6, 1944 it became a reality.  The Normandy invasion into Nazi occupied France was the largest armada ever assembled. It was the action of nations in their finest moments. There is no vision greater than that of a free society which defends the right that all should be equally free.

This year marks the 65th anniversary of D-Day which was the turning point in WWII. Take a moment this year to remember the 9,000 servicemen killed or wounded on the beaches of Normandy whose sacrifice rests in the hope of keeping the dream of global freedom alive.
