Thank you US, thank you Britain!

64 years ago – D-Day, 6th June 1944 allied troops of the US and GB landed on Normandy and started the largest invasion in history: More than 170’000 soldiers landed on D-Day alone – followed by more than 1.5 million allied troops during the rest of Operation Overlord, wherof tens of thousands lost their lives in order to bring back freedom, democracy and hope back to Europe.

Thanks to Wild Bill Guarnere, thanks to the Airborne, thanks to all the crazy British Glider pilots, thanks to all of you fighting for freedom on that glory day in history.
Let us never forget who proved to be our friends and allies!
