I enjoy dragging out old situations just so folks nowadays don’t forget. On June 6th, 1951, half of the male graduating class piled on buses to enlist in the armed forces. America had another war going on.
That was a big thing for young men my age, but nothing compared to America’s best-kept secret of 1944.
During the early hours of Tuesday, June 6, 1944, Allied forces stormed the beaches of France. The military invasion of Europe had begun. World War II’s D-Day arrived in a hail of bullets and bombs.
