    D-Day: June 6th, 1944

    Just wanted to take a minute to reflect on this date in history. A very significant one for the allies in WW2.....and even though it was a bloody battle it was key in our victory in europe.

    I find it sad that some of the kids in my classes didn't know the significance of the date. Then again I need to remember not everyone has a love for history as I do. Still it is a great chance to introduce someone to it for the first time.

    In remembrance of our fallen. And thanks to the ones who currently serve.

    Absolutely. Well said, JH.

    Sixty three years ago right now (French time, of course) the landings were taking place. Its quite moving to think that "Bloody Omaha" was earning its name at this very minute.

    Thank you.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    The History Channel is doing alot of D-Day programming throughout the day today. Just thought I would mention that for any of you at home or somewhere near a tv.

    Thanks for the heads up. We were just talking about that on our cig break and wondering if the Hitlery Channel would be doing invasion stuff all day.

    Here is their programming schedule for today. It is pretty much D-Day stuff until 8pm.

    A very important date in both American and World history for sure. The thing is I only saw one piece on the news, nothing at school, regular TV, or even the local VFW hall.

    Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it.
