D-Day is not a United States holiday, but rather a significant event in American history. It refers to the day of the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944, during World War II. On that day, Allied forces, including American troops, launched a massive invasion of German-occupied France by sea and air. The operation was a critical turning point in the war, as it allowed the Allies to establish a foothold in Europe and begin to push back against the Axis powers. The significance of D-Day lies in its role in the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany and the liberation of Europe from tyranny. The sacrifices made by the soldiers who participated in the invasion are remembered and honored, as their bravery and determination helped to shape the course of history. Observing D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy during World War II, is an opportunity to remember and honor the sacrifices made by the brave soldiers who fought and died for freedom.
