In the early morning of June 6, 1944, thousands of ships, tanks, planes, and troops crossed the English Channel and landed on the coast of France. The United States, United Kingdom and Canada led the assault phase with the help of allies from nine other countries after amphibious landings on five beaches code named Juno, Gold, Omaha, Utah and Sword.

The Battle of Normandy lasted until August 1944, leading to the liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany's control.

Join us to commemorate this anniversary, remember the more than 9,000 Allied soldiers killed or wounded on this day, and honor the D-Day/Normandy Campaign veterans who will be attending our Fly-In.
