D-Day: A 75 Year Retrospective
June 5th 6:30 p.m.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of Operation Overlord—the amphibious invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944. This presentation focuses on the invasion of both Utah Beach and Omaha Beach as well the cliffs of Pointe-du-Hoc; furthermore, the talk will focus on the American cemetery at Colleville sur Mer. The presentation by Phil Devlin, is anecdotal in nature, telling interesting stories about many people and units that played key roles in the invasion. Includes original photos and source material from the presenter, who has visited the beaches twice. The role played by Connecticut servicemen is part of this presentation.
Postponed: New Date TBD
