75th Anniversary of D-Day

The Battle of Normandy:
June 6, 1944 – June 6, 2019

History reports that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower gave the order for more than 160,000 allied troops to storm the beaches of Normandy.

We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower

The goal?

To fight Nazi Germany and defeat Adolph Hitler. Over 9,000 lost their lives or were wounded, an ultimate sacrifice that allowed soldiers to advance into Europe.
