Operation Overlord – 6/6/44

Depending on where you are in the world, today is either the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, or it’s the day before D-Day.

It’s the day when the Allied forces returned to mainland Europe, many soliders on both sides lost their lives on this day, and in the many days to come.
