D-DAY

June 6 marks the day 70 years ago when Allied troops famously stormed the beaches of Normandy in 1944. On D-Day, more than 160,000 men went up against the Germans' extensively fortified Atlantic Wall in northern France, breaking through to begin the invasion of German-occupied France. Offshore during this invasion, lending material and gunfire support, were 5,000 ships.

Search for your D-Day and other World War II heroes in Fold3′s WWII collection, and commemorate their service by creating or expanding a Memorial Page for them on the Honor Wall.
