Out of the Blue

Today is the 66th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. This is one of those undertakings that I have a hard time comprehending, no matter how often it is depicted in books, movies, and video games. The scope of the operation and the courage of the participants are just too overwhelming to completely wrap my mind around.
