Today is the 68th anniversary of D-Day, the day when Allied Forces invaded Normandy, on June 6, 1944.
The price was staggering. More men died on that day than in all of the Iraq War. But with incredible courage, the Allied Forces persisted, and won an amazing victory. The victory at Normandy prepared the way for the liberation of Europe from Nazi control, and led to the end of World War II.
In this video, President Reagan tells the story of the invasion and pays tribute to those who fought to defend liberty.
We gratefully remember them and their sacrifice. May we also be true as we face whatever sacrifices are required in our day to defend the great legacy of liberty we have received!
