D-Day Program

Seventy-nine years ago, the Allied Forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, which was the largest amphibious landing in military history. U.S. Foreign Policy expert Gary Midkiff discussed the historical event and the differences between the decision-making processes of Dwight Eisenhower and Adolf Hitler.

This program was so popular we added a second session to accommodate those interested in attending.

During both sessions, Gary recognized the military veterans who were in attendance.
