Normandy Invasion - Memory Eternal!
« on: June 05, 2011, 07:15:05 PM »
67 years ago, at this specific time (roughly) marks when the first Allied troops officially set foot in Normandy. About 4,500 Allied troops died that day, along with about 4,000 German troops.
In the battle that would ensue for Normandy, 73,000 lives would be lost on both sides.

In total, there are 110,000 graves rest in France from soldier & civilian deaths...

This was a turning point in the war, which helped in the demise of Hitler's regime.

Let us remember those on both sides who lost their lives...

Memory Eternal!

I am actually working on an assignment about an American soldier who is still alive today, who survived Normandy, Market Garden, and Battle of the Bulge. His story truly sends shivers up my spine, just realizing the seriousness and the intensity of the war. So many lives lost.

May their memories be eternal!
