Do you know what happened  on June 6th, 1944?  Does Operation Overlord mean anything to you?

www.endrebarath.com

To history buffs and patriots June 6th means the Airborne operation and  the Allied invasion of Normandy  which began  on June 6th at 6:30 am local time. Also known as Operation Overlord during World War II, more recognizable and known as D-Day. In case you did not know this was the largest seaborne invasion in  the history of the world.

Things never go as planned there were a lot of casualties. Sadly, despite all the planning and prepping including Naval artillery and Air Force bombings the estimated allied casualties were at least 10,000 and confirmed dead of 4,414 the first day.

In honor of all these soldiers who lost their lives I wanted to thank them and salute them.

 At the same time, I wanted to give this small part of history to those readers who have not being educated about our history and hope that some who  are reading and will learn and remember. Then to those who do remember but got busy and forgot what today was all about.

So, with that said this post  is my contribution to the Active Rain Challenge about flying our flag during the month of June.

Hi Endre - I don't know if you checked YouTube but there is a lengthy recording of the radio news where you can listen to reports starting around 3am New York Time going through the day.  It includes President Roosevelt coming on the radio in the evening with a prayer that he published and asked the country to say with him as they were listening to their radios.

Endre Barath, Jr. - Learning true history and remembering dates of historical significance is something I learned in school and I don't take anything for granted. I was cognizant of the events that took place on June 6 and kept those who died on that date in history in my thoughts a prayers.

Hi Endre,

I did know. But I don't think our president knows.  This is the second year in a row he did not acknowledge this day.  It is very disappointing.

Thank you for your outstanding history lesson, Endre. Love the pictures and the lesson. Sadly, most of our younger generation won't know about this history lesson because even our president chooses to suppress history. You know what they say about history repeating itself...

Nina Hollander, Broker  yes for better or worse for you and me it was recent history and it is a shame that now days they do not focus on history rather they like to rewrite it, Endre

Yes, it is indeed sad what is taught these days and so difficult to even know what is true or untrue.
