80 years, and then this

Updated: Jun 19

  June 6th, 2024 will make 80 years since the Allied offenses on the beachfront in Normandy, with our never-ending thanks and praise ` The loss of life is of course well-documented but, for those who might not know or don’t believe it happened, here are some facts about D-day 

160,000 Allied troops landed in Normandy on June 6, 1944

73,000 were from the United States, 83,000 from Britain and Canada. Forces from several other countries were also involved,

More than 2 million Allied soldiers, sailors, pilots, medics, and other people from a dozen countries were involved in the overall Operation Overlord, the battle to wrest western France from Nazi control that started on D-Day. A total of 4,414 Allied troops were killed on D-Day itself, including 2,501 Americans. More than 5,000 were wounded. In the ensuing Battle of Normandy, 73,000 Allied forces were killed and 153,000 wounded. The battle — and especially Allied bombings of French villages and cities — killed around 20,000 French civilians.

From fighting for world peace and freedom to justifying a convict. 

We all have friends and family who have given their lives, so we can live the lives we have today. Who needs History? This is the 3rd person in line for the president

of the United States

If I may clear something up, in my opening paragraph I used the words

“Don’t Beleive” 

Yes, my friends sadly in the age of Trump some people don’t believe this June 6th, 1944 happened. These are the same who swear  that  Jan. 6th, 2021 was a “Beautiful Day” 

Vaccines make you magnetic, Obama is running the country.

And so much more.

You have to wonder what those brave soldiers 80 years ago are thinking today.
