75th Anniversary of D-Day

Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day.  In remembrance here are some things you may want to take the time to review.

- D-Day by the Numbers, by the Men

General Eisenhower's D-Day speech. What was at stake.

- Here's the speech Einsenhower planned to give if things went badly. Thank God he never had to give this speech.

- D-Day landing scenes - then and now

And if you find yourself watching a baseball game today remember that on this day in 1944 Major League Baseball cancelled all games because they did not think it was appropriate to be playing games while men were fighting and dying on the beaches of Normandy.
