May History Never Forget Your Valor

65 years ago today, Allied troops stormed the beaches at Normandy. Approximately 10,000 of them paid the ultimate price for freedom. The survivors are fewer now and getting fewer everyday.

To them I say: May History Never Forget Your Valor.

Speaking of valor, I would like to point out that today is also the 67th anniversary of the Battle of Midway. Today specifically being day 2 and the day where the last air attacks took place claiming the IJN Mikuma. This was also the day that the I-168 topedoed and sank the Destroyer Hammann and heavily damaged the Carrier Yorktown, which would finally sink on the 7th.
