For me, June 6th, 1944, represents one of the most pivotal moments in modern history. Sixty-three years ago Allied forces threw themselves against the walls of Fortress Europe, with the intent to destroy the German occupation. It is just an incredible moment in time, one which will, forever, be indelibly marked upon my soul. This day, named, ‘The day of days’ marked the beginning of the end for the German domination of Europe. I salute those who had the courage, the sheer will to master their fear, and fight for and win freedom for the rest of us. I will never forget you.
