D-Day

The Normandy landings were the operations on Tuesday, June 6, 1944 of the Allied forces invasion of France in Operation Overlord during World War II. Referred to as D-day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began as the liberation of German-occupied France, and later Europe from Nazi control, and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front. German casualties in D-Day have been estimated at 4,000 to 9,000 men. Allied casualties were at least 10.000, with 4,414 confirmed dead.

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of this liberation event, this post is dedicated to the men an women who served to keep us free. It is also to celebrate Jesus, who served and gave his life to keep us free.
