D-Day Stories: Where Were You?

June 6, 1944, the Allied forces commenced their invasion of Normandy in the turning point of World War II. That night, President Roosevelt gave a radio address and asked the nation to pray with him.

"[Our] men's souls will be shaken with the violence of war. For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace," Roosevelt said, closing with a prayer for "a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil."

Just over a year later, America and much of the World enjoyed a peace that would last decades.

We are commemorating this D-Day with stories from people who were there. We want to hear your story and if you weren't alive yet, we invite you to interview a family member or friend who was. These are important memories to share, which is why we'll be featuring your stories (200 words or less) on Saturday, D-Day.

And take a look at the stories that have already been submitted.
