Remember D-Day

 

D-Day June 6th, 1944

The enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed. But we shall return again and again!

 

D-Day in numbers.

 

 

Leave our safe space? What if they call us names?

 

Remember men, if any of you should feel offended…

We have set aside safe spaces on the beach.

June 6th, 1944 – D-Day.

D-Day marked the beginning of the liberation of German-occupied France. According to Wikipedia, D-Day was the largest seaborne invasion in history. It consisted of nearly 5,000 landing and assault craft, 289 escort vessels, and 277 minesweepers participating. Nearly 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel on D-Day, with 875,000 men disembarking by the end of June.

There were at least 10,000 Allied casualties in a single day with an additional 3000 civilian casualties. We present the following memes as a small attempt to memorialize the brave soldiers who fought and died to free France from German occupation.

We owe you our greatest thanks.

D-Day
