D-Day: June 6, 1944



NRA’s Life of Duty wanted to share something with our readers. In honor of today’s 68th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, they sent us a link to a video that was originally created by the U.S. Army in 1969 to relay the battle action of the landing at Normandy and the fierce combat that took place to overcome “Fortress Europe”.
D-Day: June 6, 1944
Description:
June 6, 1944 marks the 68th anniversary of “Operation Overload” – the D-Day invasion where more than 160,000 allied troops landed on a 50-mile stretch of French Coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. The invasion led to the deaths of more than 9,000 allied forces, but the victory resulted in a significant turning point for Europe’s history. Today, we would like to honor the allied forces that participated in the invasion by sharing a film created by the U.S. Army in 1969. In this film, the drama and battle action of the landing at Normandy is portrayed along with the fierce combat that took place to overcome “Fortress Europe” (compliments of the National Archives).
