On this day in history, our troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, France… June 6, 1944, saw more than 160,000 Allied forces land in Nazi-occupied France as part of the largest air, land, and sea invasion ever executed.




US troops hit the Utah and Omaha Beaches. Great Britain and some smaller forces stormed Gold and Sword Beaches, and the Canadians took Juno Beach.



Operation Overlord became known as the beginning of the end of World War II. Deepest gratitude to all who fought and all who died as the Allied forces staged one of the most pivotal attacks against Germany during WWII along that famous 50-mile stretch of beaches.
