Remembering D-Day 


By: Alli Harlan

Today marks 80 years since D-Day.

On this day in 1944, the largest invasion in the history of warfare took place.

Brave American soldiers were traveling on ships to free France from the Nazi German control during World War II.

When they arrived, bullets were fired and over 10,000 Allied troops and around 9,000 Axis troops died.

According to statistics, over 150,000 Allied troops, 5,000 ships and landing crafts, 50,000 vehicles, and 11,000 planes were involved.

We honor those involved in D-Day every June 6th, for their service, dedication, and ultimate sacrifice for our country.

For those serving or who have served, thank you!
