68th Anniversary of D-day Invasion
Our friends at NRA Life of Duty have put together a stellar video commemorating the 68th anniversary of D-day and Operation Overlord.
June 6, 1944 marks the 68th anniversary of “Operation Overload” – the D-Day invasion where more than 160,000 allied troops landed on a 50-mile stretch of French Coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. The invasion led to the deaths of more than 9,000 allied forces, but the victory resulted in a significant turning point for Europe’s history. Today, we would like to honor the allied forces that participated in the invasion by sharing a film created by the U.S. Army in 1969. In this film, the drama and battle action of the landing at Normandy is portrayed along with the fierce combat that took place to overcome “Fortress Europe” (compliments of the National Archives).
