June 6, 1944 and June 5, 1967

Seventy-three years ago the Western Allies landed on Normandy's beaches to battle the Nazi aggressors.  Fifty years and a day ago Israel began its six-day war against the Arab aggressors.  These were two difficult and deadly undertakings, and resulted in two great triumphs for the free world.  I won't post any commentary here, except to note with gratitude that some were willing to fight for freedom and civilization.

Here's an interesting Hoover Institution interview of historian Michael Oren on the Six Day War.  And below is General Eisenhower's Order of the Day for June 6, 1944. (Click on it for a larger view.)
