Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy during WWII. It was the largest seaborne invasion in history and began the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi control. 10,000 Allied troops died on D-Day.
Oh, beautiful for heroes provedIn liberating strife,Who more than self their country loved,And mercy more than life!America! America!May God thy gold refine,Till all success be nobleness,And ev’ry gain divine.
