June 6 1944 "Operation Overlord"

On this date in 1944 the allies landed in Normandy to free Europe from the German invaders and 11 months later Germany surrendered.


  1. Ah. Can you imagine getting a letter like that? So cool. Just reading it sent chills.

    1. Hey Momma Fargo;

      They called it the "Great Crusade", the campaign to liberate Europe. We got something similar from General Schwartzkopf before we crossed the berm. I will look for the letter and post it.

  2. A few folks do still have copies. I've seen ONE in my lifetime.

  3. Hey Old NFO;

    The only copies that I have seen are in museums. You are 1 up on a lot of folks.
