Remembering D Day

We have assembled the following YouTube videos commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day invasion.  Hope you enjoy these.

D-Day Stories: Guy Whidden, Paratrooper
Guy Whidden was one of the first to parachute into Normandy on D-Day. A moment of divine intervention would save his life.

D-Day Squadron's Departure Prep For Normandy
The D-Day Squadron is the American contingent participating in the Daks Over Normandy flyover crossing the English Channel to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day on June 6, 2019. The epic journey of a fleet of C-47s (military DC-3 aircraft) will honor the soldiers of the War. The D-Day Squadron departs from Waterbury Oxford Airport in Connecticut on May 19, eventually flying the Blue Spruce Route and traversing the North Atlantic.

D-Day Stories: Frank DeVita Describes Landing on the Beach
Frank DeVita was in charge of lowering the ramp on the USS Samuel Chase on D-Day. The role would haunt him for the rest of his life.

Archive Video Of The D-Day Normandy Landings
British and American veterans are set to leave Portsmouth and travel to Normandy for the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

D-Day Veteran's Harrowing Normandy Experience
World War 2 veteran George Chiampa explains his experiences in Normandy to Ben Shapiro

D-Day: How the Allies broke through Hitler's 'Fortress Europe'
‘Operation Overlord’ would see 50,000 vehicles, 11,000 aircraft, 5,000 ships and 150,000 Allied troops storm the shores of occupied France with the goal of breaking through Hitler’s Fortress Europe.

Watch this WWII-style jump to honor historic 75th anniversary of Normandy invasion
The D-Day Squadron and Liberty Jump Team recreated a WWII-style jump in Maryland before flying to France for the anniversary of the Normandy Invasion.

What WWII Allies heard on D Day, before storming Nazis, saving world
75 years ago, General Eisenhower addressed thousands of WWII Allied troops before they stormed Nazi troops on the beaches of Normandy, France.

Veterans reflect on their service for the 75th anniversary of D-Day
This week marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day — the invasion that liberated Europe and turned the tide of World War II. More than 160,000 troops stormed the beaches of Normandy in 1944. Mark Phillips reports.

75 Years After D-Day, Normandy's US Cemetery a Vivid Reminder of Sacrifices
On June 6th, heads of state including President Trump will gather at a beach in northern France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. In this military operation, thousands of American and other allied soldiers lost their lives in the first phase of a final push to liberate France and the continent from Nazi occupation. The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial represents a unique place to pay tribute to the fallen warriors.

Flying over Normandy 75 years after D-Day
On June 6, this squadron will comprise the American contingent of a massive reenactment of D-Day called “Daks over Normandy,” a multi-nation commemoration that will include dozens of restored C-47s and hundreds of volunteer paratroopers. Each will be wearing not only authentic WWII-era uniforms and gear, but also the same kind of parachutes Allied soldiers used when tens of thousands jumped over occupied France 75 years ago.
