On June 6, 1944 the Allied Forces of Britain, America, Canada, and France attacked German forces on the coast of Normandy, France. With a huge force of over 150,000 soldiers, the Allies attacked and gained a victory that became the turning point for World War II in Europe. This famous battle is sometimes called D-Day or the Invasion of Normandy.
Veterans, world leaders and hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world are at the beaches of Normandy today to honor the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.
Do you have relatives that were involved with D-Day/The Invasion of Normandy?

Wherever Clay was on Thursday, he met this gentleman who posted the following on twitter…
On Thursday, the first round of the 2014 Major League Baseball draft took place. The Houston Astros had the No. 1 pick and they chose Brady Aiken.
