On June 6, 1944, 156,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches along the coast of Normandy, France, in an effort to liberate Europe from Nazi occupation. Pictured are the brave men of the American assault troops of the 16th Infantry Regiment being attended to by medics after storming Omaha Beach during the invasion. The D-Day invasion was a key contributer to the Allied victory in WWII.
In a radio address the night of June 6, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Americans to join him in a prayer. “With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy,” he said. “Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country ... and a peace that will let all men live in freedom.”
