Seventy years ago, in the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, the largest Armada in history began to cross the English Channel toward the coast of Normandy, France.  156,000 allied troops, 5,000 ships, 50,000 vehicles and 11,000 planes embarked on a desperate, do-or-die invasion of Hitler's Fortress Europe.  By the end of the day the Allies sustained over 10,000 casualties and the Germans, between 4,000 and 9,000.  The beaches were secured however, and within five days over 326,000 troops and 100,000 tons of materials had made the crossing.  It was the beginning of the end of the bloodiest conflict in human history, causing the death, by some estimates, of over 60 million people.  Please join us as we recall the events of that fateful day and honor the men whose courage, determination and ultimate sacrifice finally led to the end of World War II, and some of the darkest days the world has ever known.  As part of the program, the Tunkhannock American Legion Honor Guard will remember those who served or gave their lives on June 6, 1944 in Normandy, France.
Tickets will be available by calling 570-996-1500 or at the ticket booth as long as they last.
