67 Years Ago

The Canadians stormed Juno Beach.
“At the end of the day, its forward elements stood deeper into France than those of any other division. The opposition the Canadians faced was stronger than that of any other beach save Omaha. That was an accomplishment in which the whole nation could take considerable pride.” John Keegan, British Historian
And so we pause again today to say "Thank You" to the brave Allied Forces who kicked the Nazi machine in the teeth on that fateful day, June 6, 1944, and who continued on through adversity and trial to Berlin and the surrender of Germany.

God bless you and keep you. May the fallen rest in peace.
