On June 6, 1944, Allied troops landed on a stretch of French coastline. General Dwight D Eisenhower called it a crusade and said “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” It was a battle that saw much courage and many losses but allowed the Allies a foothold in Europe. History that needs to always be remembered. Much respect to those who fought for freedoms. 

And a reminder to participate in our Veterans Radiothon Friday June 14.
