D-Day

This past Saturday was the 71st Anniversary of D-Day.

160,000 Allied troops invaded the beach at Normandy Beach. This was the first step in breaking the hold that the Nazis had on Europe.

More than 9,000 men were killed or injured in process. Their sacrifice will never be forgotten.

The following clip is from the  1998 film, Saving Private Ryan.

I need to warn you that this clip may contain graphic scenes of war. Watch at your own risk if scenes like these make you uneasy.
