D-Day 70th Remembrance

I know the Marine Corps was not used for Operation Overlord - we were fighting away in the Pacific at the time - but this was the invasion that gave the Allies Europe back and, obviously, one of the most pivotal in the history of WWII. In honor of those who left their souls on the beaches of Normandy.

We can never forget our history, we must learn about those who came before us and understand why we do what we do and what makes us strong as a nation - it is the character of our people and their willingness to sacrifice for the greater cause.
