Operation Overlord – 6 June 1944

Yes, I know, everyone is running around talking about 6-6-06 but being the curmudgeon that I am,
I wanted to commemorate the sacrifices of the soldiers that stormed the
beaches of Normandy, France during World War II (as we Yanks commonly
refer to it).

Although every man who took part in the invasion deserves our thanks, I
especially wanted to honor those who, through their unswerving
attention to duty, honor, and courage, above and beyond what was
expected, earned the Congressional Medal of Honor on that day. Their stories
are recounted
at the US Army site
:

Carlton W. Barrett

John E. Butts

Charles N. Deglopper

Walter D. Ehlers

Robert G. Cole

Arthur F. Defranzo

John D. Kelly

Jimmie W. Monteith, Jr.

Carlos C. Ogden

Frank D. Peregory

John J. Pinder, Jr.

Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.

The CCNY Libraries site has a
listing of D-Day resources
that may be of interest to those who wish to know more about the events of that day.

Aloha!
