Every year, thousands of people gather across the country to remember those that have fought in the past and continue to fight for our freedom. To pay respects, poppies are placed on Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and wreaths are laid on the Cenotaph. This year marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the battle of Normandy. Although D-Day is remembered to be one of the deadliest battles, it was also known for being an Allied victory which changed the course of the Second World War. This battle ultimately drove the Nazis from northwest Europe in June of 1944.
