The Normandy landings (codenamed Operation Neptune) were the landing operations on 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. The largest seaborne invasion in history, the operation began the invasion of German-occupied western Europe, led to the liberation of France from Nazi control, and contributed to the Allied victory. German casualties on D-Day were around 1,000 men. Allied casualties were at least 10,000, with 4,414 confirmed dead.

Remembering comrades-in-arms known and left behind, or a friend or relative who never came home. The Vietnam Memorial (aka, "The Wall") is simple in conception and execution, but it is incredibly powerful. The black granite wall, and the people and mementos left there each day, evoke a strong, almost visceral. emotional response every time I go.
