Certain dates linger as touchstones in American history. July 4. September 11. December 7.
Today's another, and I nearly forgot about it.
Today, June 6, is the 63rd anniversary of the D-Day invasion.
On a single day, American forces suffered 1465 dead, 3184 wounded, 1928 missing and 26 captured. Numbers that would cause a total meltdown in the news these days.
Read the stories. Look at the pictures. Remember.
I thought this was interesting: how the Normandy invasion might be reported today. (h-t: Malkin)
