June 6 1944 : D Day

June 6 1944

I thought the Deadly Tedley said it quite well in Human Events with: 
Remember and Celebrate D Day:

There are pivotal dates in American history that are seared into the memories of those of us who know them and live to remember: July 4, September 11, December 7.
And there are pivotal dates in world history. You would be hard pressed to find a more defining moment in the history of the world than June 6, 1944. In spite of the irresponsible revisionist American anti-education system, the date will forever be known by historians and patriots as D Day.

Sixty-six years ago today, the path to liberating the world from Nazi fascism began on the beaches of Normandy, as scared young men from the Greatest Generation rushed ashore under withering Nazi machine gun fire and artillery.

Just prior to the invasion that would ultimately liberate the world, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander, transmitted a message to the young men who would fight and die in the coming hours. It read in part: “You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.”
