First, a solemn moment for those who lost their lives on June 6, 1944, 65 years ago today, June 6, 2009.  We thank you for your service and for the sacrifice you made.  May you rest in peace.



And now, a moment to the survivors.  We thank you for the sacrifice of your loved ones.  We stand committed that they did not die in vain.


And finally, here is a link to the the Army's page in memory of D-day, June 6, 1944.  There is a video there that I would highly recommend watching: http://www.army.mil/d-day/

May we never forget the sacrifice that was made on our behalf.

I found this Transcript (http://www.army.mil/d-day/message.html) of General Eisenhower's message which was sent just prior to the invasion of what was later known as D-Day.

Quote
General Eisenhower

Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

-- Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
