It’s hard to believe that 68 years ago today, so many men took part in one of the greatest moments in military history.
The Allied forces commenced Operation Overlord, which was also known as “D-Day”.
Before the invasion into Nazi-Occupied Europe commenced, airborne soldiers landed behind enemy lines to knock out targets to help make the lives somewhat easier for the men readying to storm the beaches of Normandy.
So many men made the ultimate sacrifice on the beaches of Normandy, and I shall never forget that it’s because of the brave men of the Canadian army who died for King and Country that I am able to live the way I do, and have the rights and freedoms I enjoy.
I shall never forget, I will always remember.
