Today commemorates the 76th anniversary of D-Day, also known as Operation Overlord and Operation Neptune.

Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, a heavily fortified coast. Young Americans, like the Bedford Boys, fought and gave their lives in defense of freedom and the liberation of Europe. May we never forget their bravery and sacrifice. #TogetherWeRemember

King (class of 1901), a task force had been formed to control operations and oversee the training for the cross-channel assault. Admiral Alan Goodrich Kirk (Class of 1909) was the senior U.S. naval commander during the Normandy landings

Fought on the high seas of the Pacific more than half a century ago, the Battle of Midway was one of the most significant battles of the Pacific campaign in World War II. It was a strategic turning point of the war, which altered the course of the war and thereby shaped the outcome of world events.

Thanks to the United States Navy Band for this excellent commemoration of our naval history.

The Battle of Midway was one of the most critical battles of World War II, and one of the most one-sided battles in all of history, although achieved at a very high cost for the U.S. aircraft and aircrew responsible for the victory.

The United States held advantages that included of the element of surprise, radar, superior damage control, and the ability of U.S. aircraft to absorb damage. Although the total number of Japanese forces committed to the Midway operation (essentially, almost every operational ship in the Imperial Japanese Navy) far exceeded that of the U.S. Navy none but the four carriers were in a position to effect the outcome of the battle at the critical point and time. #MidwayInMemoriam #Midway78

The U.S. Navy's victory at Midway in June 1942 was the turning point of World War II in the Pacific. Success at Midway set the course for the Allies' defeat of Imperial Japan. This epic naval battle provides many lessons learned about the importance of naval force and intelligence capabilities, and the importance of securing maritime superiority in a conflict - yesterday and today.

#OTD May 26, 1958, two Unknowns from World War II, one from the European Theatre and one from the Pacific Theatre, were placed in identical caskets on either side of the selected Korean War Unknown Soldier during ceremonies aboard guided missile cruiser USS Canberra (CAG-2) off the Virginia Capes.

U.S. Navy Hospitalman William R. Charette, then the Navy's only active-duty Medal of Honor recipient, made the final selection (photo 2) of the World War II Unknown Soldier. The World War II Unknown Soldier candidate not chosen went on to receive a solemn burial at sea eight miles offshore. The selected World War II and Korean War Unknown Soldiers were transferred to the USS Blandy (DD-943) and taken to what is now the Washington Navy Yard.

On the morning of May 28, in a nationally televised ceremony, the selected World War II and Korean War Unknowns were carried to Washington, D.C., where they lied in state at the Capitol Rotunda and were rotated such that each rested on the "Lincoln catafalque."

On May 30, then the official date of #MemorialDay, caissons transported the Unknowns to Arlington National Cemetery where they were interred beside their World War I comrade in the plaza of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. President Eisenhower awarded each the Medal of Honor.
