National Donut Day!

Today is the 70th Anniversary of D-Day! (and it’s also National Donut Day)

The 70th Anniversary of D-Day! Normandy, France – June 6, 1944

It’s D-Day! Today is the 70th Anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy!

order-of-the-day

Operation Overlord was the name assigned to the invasion of the Continent. The Normandy landing was the first phase, codenamed Operation Neptune, and the amphibious attack was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the Allied invasion of German-occupied western Europe, the establishment of a beachhead on the European continent, and it eventually led to the defeat of Nazi Germany and the end of World War II.

USA! The United States of America!

USA! The United States of America!

At Omaha Beach, part of the Mulberry Harbour B is still visible in the sea at Arromanches, a few beach obstacles remain, and the Longues-sur-Mer battery is nearby. A memorial to the American National Guard sits at the location of a former German strongpoint. Pointe du Hoc is little changed from 1944, with the terrain covered with bomb craters and most of the concrete bunkers still in place. The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial is in Colleville-sur-Mer. Museums are located at Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, and Sainte-Mère-Église. Two German military cemeteries are also located nearby. The Juno Beach Centre, opened in 2003, was funded by the Canadian federal and provincial governments, France, and Canadian veterans. Pegasus Bridge, a target of the British 6th Airborne, was the site of some of the earliest action of the Normandy landings. The bridge was replaced in 1994 by one similar in appearance, and the original is now housed on the grounds of a nearby museum complex.
