Honor their Fight for Freedom
Today June 6th, 2019 marks the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. More than 160,000 allied troops landed in Normandy, across 5 beaches. Many lives were lost in the fight for Freedom. Dwight D. Eisenhower called the operation a crusade stating “we will accept nothing less than full victory.” It was reported that 5,000 ships and nearly 13,000 aircrafts supported the D-Day invasion and by the day’s end the allies were able to gain a foot-hold in Continental Europe. Many lives were lost in the fight for Freedom. Hancock County Savings Bank will always remember and be thankful for the sacrifices made.
