Remembering D-Day

Sixty-three years ago today, Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, thus opening up a Western Front in the war against Germany. It was the beginning of the end; eleven months later, Nazi Germany, beset from the East by the Soviet juggernaut and from the West by the Allies, collapsed. Today is a day that we should remember the sacrifice of the thousands who died storming Hitler’s Fortress Europe in order to hasten the end of his vile regime.

Larry Moran over at Sandwalk has a tribute, as do Andrew Bell and Dave In Texas.
