D Day

We shall remember them.

1944 - World War II: Battle of Normandy begins. D-Day, code named Operation Overlord, commences with the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history.
On this day the Internet was also born...

1969 - The first Internet connection was created when network control protocol packets were sent from the data port of one IMP to another.
Both events were milestones in Freedom.
