Storming the castle, revisited

Sixty-five years ago today:

D-Day.

Addendum: Black Five has an excellent roundup of D-Day posts from many blogs. And have a look at this entry for a photo essay on D-Day.

(First posted in 2006. I was going to write something else to commemorate D-Day, but that photo says it all.)

UPDATE: President Reagan's speech at Normandy, delivered on the
40th anniversary of the landings in 1984: The Boys of Pointe du Hoc. One of the great presidential
speeches, ever. Audio of the speech: Part 1 and Part 2.
