On Wednesday we mark to 68th anniversary of the battle that paved the way for the Allied victory in Europe in World War II.
The June 6 invasion of Normandy, commonly known as D-Day, is one of the pivotal events in the history of our country and the world.
It came at a heavy price. Although there is no official casualty count, estimates of allied troops killed range from 2,500 to 4,400.
The beaches of Normandy have been considered sacred ground for Americans ever since and there have been numerous memorials to those we lost that day.
The Massapequa area recently celebrated Memorial Day with its annual parade, and the area is known for honoring the contributions of our Veterans.
We're now several generation removed from D-Day and we'd like to know if the sacrifices made by our military mean as much to the current generation as they did to the "Greatest Generation."
