The Longest Day - 6 June 1944
Today is a day for reflection. Exactly 71 years ago this morning my 8th grade home-room teacher sent my class to the auditorium for an assembly at which our principal announced that American, British and Canadian troops - and some Dutch, Czech, Polish and Norwegian soldiers - had landed on the Normandy coast of France and the invasion of German-occupied northwest Europe was on. We had been reading the papers and listening to the radio and knew something like this was imminent and was really big, but none of us had any real understanding of the magnitude nor of the fact that tens of thousands of men would die that day. D-Day the 6th of June meant something to us. Today should be a day of remembrance and thanksgiving for the sacrifices they made.
