Another hot day in the city,…… not so here in Cannon Beach….. going to have a high of 67 today. Couple of important events in history today…..
June 6, 1944, D-Day, over 156,000 allied troops landed in Normandy. “Time
magazine reported on June 12  that “as far as the U.S. Army can determine,
the first use of D for Day, H for Hour was in Field Order No. 8, of the First Army, A.E.F.,
issued on Sept. 20, 1918, which read, ‘The First Army will attack at H-Hour on D-Day
with the object of forcing the evacuation of the St. Mihiel salient.’”
In other words, the D in D-Day merely stands for Day. This coded designation was
used for the day of any important invasion or military operation. For military planners
(and later historians), the days before and after a D-Day were indicated using plus and
minus signs: D-4 meant four days before a D-Day, while D+7 meant seven days after a D-Day.”
Another Historic event was the birth of my mother, who in turn gave birth to myself and 5 sisters….. a truly heroic and historic event! Happy Birthday Mom!!
