________________________________

Today marks the 68th Anniversary of D-Day. On the morning of June 5, 1944, U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe gave the go-ahead for Operation Overlord, the largest amphibious military operation in history. On his orders, 6,000 landing craft, ships and other vessels carrying 176,000 troops began to leave England for the trip to France. That night, 822 aircraft filled with parachutists headed for drop zones in Normandy. An additional 13,000 aircraft were mobilized to provide air cover and support for the invasion.

By dawn on June 6, 18,000 parachutists were already on the ground; the land invasions began at 6:30 a.m. The British and Canadians overcame light opposition to capture Gold, Juno and Sword beaches; so did the Americans at Utah. The task was much tougher at Omaha beach, however, where 2,000 troops were lost and it was only through the tenacity and quick-wittedness of troops on the ground that the objective was achieved. By day’s end, 155,000 Allied troops–Americans, British and Canadians–had successfully stormed Normandy’s beaches.

Within three months, the northern part of France would be freed and the invasion force would be preparing to enter Germany, where they would meet up with Soviet forces moving in from the east.

    If you go to France a day in Normandy is a must. The bravery that day changed the world. If you survived the landing then you got to fight in the Battle of the Hedgerows. More men died in that battle than the landing. Thank you to all who have served or serve!

    Matched my C&J pr at 245#, the limiting factor is the jerk, coulda done more on the clean

    Then the wod was going well and on my second muscle up I landed on a plate funny and rolled my ankle. Needless to say I was done. Was on track for an 18-ish minute time frame.

    Not a bad sprain. Should be there tomorrow bright and early!
