It was before I was born, too. D-Day. The 'Longest Day'. June 6, 1944, the day the allied troops of WW II landed on Normandy's beaches and saved the world from a sure tyranny.There was no TV then. Only radio. We have some audio to share.

Here are two famous radio speeches that day.

From Supreme Commander of Allied Forces, General Dwight David Eisenhower's address to the troops.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's prayer for the nation.

And, President Ronald Reagan's address at Normandy on the 40th Anniversary remembrance.
