Today marks the 65th anniversary of D-Day. We'd like to take a look back and remember those who served so bravely, those who fought and died and those who returned home to tell their stories.
Today, on the 65th anniversary of the invasion at Normandy please reflect, remember and pay tribute by visiting the United States European Command's D-Day website. The website has past and present D-Day news, photos, links, stories and events and is on our opinion THE best place for information and commemoration this D-Day. (follow them on twitter at @US_EUCOM and use hashtag #DDay65 for all D-Day related tweets today)
You can also learn more about D-Day from wikipedia.
Additionally, in honor of our troops, today is "Take a Military Person to Lunch Day" so grab someone you know who served or is serving and take them out to lunch, or order lunch for your local military recruiters.
