    "D-Day" Normandy Invasion - June 6, 1944

    Today is the 64th anniversary of D-Day, the beginning of the end of WWII. Here is a site with some interesting facts about that day.

    The 5000-vessel armada stretched as far as the eye could see, transporting over 150,000 men and nearly 30,000 vehicles across the channel to the French beaches. Six parachute regiments -- over 13,000 men -- were flown from nine British airfields in over 800 planes. More than 300 planes dropped 13,000 bombs over coastal Normandy immediately in advance of the invasion.
