D-Day earns its place in military history
The Allied invasion of eastern France in 1944, better known as D-Day is being celebrated as today marks 70th anniversary of the largest seaborne military invasion in history.
This day, though dwarfed in importance the numerous historical military dates we honor in America, may be the most important of all.
The massive onslaught of Allied Forces, most of whom were by American troops, signified more than any other event the importance the United States of America has had in international affairs. It eventually led to the liberation of France and all of Europe from a ruthless tyrant who had already ravished Europe. It also ended any threat of that evil making its way across the Atlantic to our homes.
