Join us to commemorate D-Day, which took place on June 6, 1944.
It was the largest amphibious invasion of all time, with 5000 allied ships and 175,000 troops attacking the Atlantic Wall of Hitler's Fortress Europe. They landed on the beaches of Normandy, in sectors codenamed Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, and Sword.
It's the day of days -- time to paint on your invasion stripes and go hit those beaches.
