D-Day + 24,837

I've always had a deep appreciation for the World War II event.  I find the logistics and strategy and sheer bravery that were necessary to bring victory for the Allies simply fascinating.

Today marks the 68th anniversary of the Allied Invasion of Normandy.  Arriving first by air, then by sea, the scale of this operation was monumental!

D-Day: The Normandy Invasion

A statue of Major Richard Winters will be unveiled today in Normandy, which makes me even more excited to plan a tour of the route of the Allied invasion, subsequent battlefields, and other related points of interest.  Eagles Nest, here I come!
