June 6th - Anniversary of D-Day

I originally posted this on 6/6/10, but felt it was important enough to repost it today. Please keep in mind those who fight every day for our freedoms and for the families who have lost loved ones in the continued battles all over the world. God bless our country and our troops!



Today is the anniversary of the Allies invasion of France on June 6, 1944 which was a triumph of intelligence, coordination, secrecy, and planning. The bold attack was also a tremendous risk, but ultimately it succeeded because of individual soldiers' bravery in combat. By nightfall, more than 9,000 Allied soldiers were dead or wounded, but more than 100,000 had made it ashore, securing French coastal villages.




Please remember these men who risked their lives and those who gave up their lives so that we could have our freedom. God bless you all and God bless America.



Until next time..... Lorie

[By the way, if you have a chance, check out all the interesting information on D-Day at the pbs.org site, it is very informative, plus has copies of letters from deployed soldiers to their loved ones.]

I didn't even realize June 6th commemorated this event.

My thoughts are with those men and woman who lost their lives along with their families.
