D-Day Anniversary

It happened 63 years ago today.

Here is one of the heroes of that day: Benjamin H. Vandervoort, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne. He was portrayed by John Wayne in the 1962 film The Longest Day. He carried out his assignment despite a broken ankle.

A salute to all the Allied soldiers who fought that day.
