Eighty Years Later

Today is the 80th anniversary of D-Day, when Allied forces stormed the beaches at Normandy, France—the largest seaborne invasion in history.

This was the beginning of the end of World War II in Europe. It was the end of the Nazi regime and the return of sovereignty to the many nations in Europe that the Axis had overtaken.

Over 2500 of the 4400 troops killed that day were Americans. During the Battle of Normandy, 73,000 Allied forces were killed and over 150,000 wounded, plus 20,000 French civilians lost their lives. They fought valiantly to rid the world of an existential threat to freedom and our way of life.

Today, eight decades later, we face a similar threat from Russia in Ukraine, and from terrorists in the Middle East, who freely proclaim their goal is to first destroy Israel, then America and other Western nations.

Do we have the fortitude and determination our parents and grandparents had to fight for what’s right? On this anniversary, let us remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and understand our responsibility to continue the fight in their memory.
