Pay Your Respects to the Patriotic Soldiers Who Fought on D-Day
The Battle of Normandy, which took place on June 6th 1944 during World War II, is a heartfelt time of year for many families across America. For Team Bullet Blues and millions of others, D-Day serves as a poignant reminder of the thousands of brave soldiers who fought for their country – and our freedom.
In the summer of 1944 on June 6th, Allied nations joined forces for what would become the largest amphibious invasion in history. Troops united from England, America, Canada, Poland and France fought against Nazi Germany in the monumental battle that liberalized north-western Europe from German occupation. Gone but never forgotten, it’s this outstanding team achievement that springs to mind in memory of the 10,000 patriotic veterans who were tragically killed and severely wounded as a result.
The Battle of Normandy Troops: Gone but Never Forgotten
Every year on June 6th, Bullet Blues remembers all the brave men who sacrificed their lives so we could live ours. This year marks the 73rd anniversary since The Battle of Normandy took place, and one of the thoughtful ways to pay your respects to the troops is by taking time out and visiting the Normandy American Cemetery, in France. With as many as 9,387 soldiers laid to rest here, this peaceful memorial site is equally as important today as it was when it was first created in 1952.
