    Never forget the sacrifices laid down by the greatest generation on the beaches of Normandy, France and beyond on June 6th, 1944...so that the world may live free of tyranny.

    Today's Bing opening page is an aerial view of Pointe Du Hoc.

    Two hundred young men from America's Greatest Generation, of the 2nd Ranger Battalion, vertically climbed 100-foot cliffs, crawled over the precipice, and charged machine guns so they could kill the enemy and secure the high ground..

    D-Day, 74 years ago the allies began the battle that led to the winning of World War 2. So many made the ultimate sacrifice, let us not forget.

    Salute to the brave soldiers that preserved our way of life as we know it.

    76 years ago. The outcome of WWII was in the hands of those brave soldiers that stormed the beaches of France. They saved liberty and freedom.

    My dad joined the Navy right before D-Day.
    The Army said he was too young.
    He lied about his age to get in the Navy. He wasn't born 'til '29, but his ID says 1928.
    It was Jun 3, 1944 this was issued. He was 17 years and 17 days old.

    He was sent out with a green crew, on a brand new Heavy Cruiser, for the South Pacific.
    US Columbus #CA74 Launched Nov. of 1944.
    Built by Bethlehem for $24 million, back when a Buick was $1700.
