Thursday June 6, 2019 is the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of  the beaches of Normandy, France. Over 156,000 soldiers, supported by 5000 ships and 13,000 aircraft, stormed beaches code named  Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword.  Approximately 4000 Allied soldiers were killed securing those landing sites. On June 6, 2019, President  Donald Trump will gather with European leaders in France to attend ceremonies to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy.
To our World War II veterans, Thank You.
