63 years ago, on June 6th 1944, thousands of allied soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy to liberate Europe! Let us not forget their bravery and the immense sacrifice that they made for us (for many it was the ultimate sacrifice).

It must have been frightening then; like walking into the mouth of hell. Very brave, selfless men indeed. Thanks for the reminder.
