Remember This Day in History?

“We will accept nothing less than full victory.”
–General Dwight D. Eisenhower

Today was the day that in 1944 allied troops fought Nazi soldiers on the beaches of Normandy, France. This battle gained us a foothold in Normandy contributing to the end of World War II in Europe.

Many lives were lost, but the troops wouldn’t settle for anything less than victory. We call this day, “D-Day.”
