70th Anniverisary of D-Day in Ohio???

6 June 1944 is an important day in history. It marks the 70th anniversary of the World War 2 allied invasion of Nazi held continental western Europe.

I’ve been fortunate to visit hallowed places like the Normandy beaches and Gettysburg. It’s a somber experience but makes one proud to be an American!  

Ohio also has its own D-Day invasion!  On Lake Erie’s northern shores this invasion is reenacted every year in Conneaut.  This year the invasion armada hits the beaches on August 22 and 23.

If you cannot make it to Normandy France then Ohio’s North Coast is a great alternative!

Just remember to thank a veteran! Their service and sacrifices paid for the freedoms and privileges we enjoy today.  Boots on the ground, in the air and on the seas accomplished this and hopefully will continue to guard our liberties. Political rhetoric and pacifism only demeans and weakens the cause.
