71 years

June 6th, 1944. The world has been at war for nearly 5 years. An invasion of unprecedented scope, years in the planning, is launched. Those brave men and women of the Allied nations stood on a precipice and without hesitation flung themselves into the breech.

EagleEggs would like to take a solemn moment and remember those tens of thousands of soldiers, sailors and airmen of all nations who set the course for the downfall of the Axis powers. They know the term “The Longest Day”

… — (Morse code for “V”, for Victory)
