On June 6, 1944: More than 150,000 Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, France as part of the largest seaborne invasion in history.

Conservative commentator Jack Posobiec noted: “None of these boys needed to be told what a man is.”

Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s original “D-day Statement to Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force”:

The invasion force included 7,000 ships and landing craft manned by over 195,000 naval personnel from eight allied countries. Almost 133,000 troops from the United States, the British Commonwealth, and their allies, landed on D-Day. Casualties from these countries during the landing numbered 10,300.
