Remember that on this day, in 1944, nearly 160,000 men, young and old, from all across the United States, Canada, and Great Britian, slogged their way through sand bars and bloody water, up a beach torn apart by artillery and bullets, to bluffs overlooking the English Channel studded with reinforced concrete bunkers, in order to free Europe from the grip of facism.

Somewhere around 10,000 of them gave something.

Between 3,000-5,000 men took their last steps that day.
