6 June 1944: D-Day

Just after midnight, Allied forces arrived by air and sea to liberate Western Europe from Nazi control. Known as D-Day, this top-secret mission remains the largest amphibious military invasion in history.

More than 156,000 Allied troops stormed five heavily defended beaches that day. The brave heroes who selflessly fought for our freedom saw unimaginable terrors. Things that no amount of training could fully prepare them for.

Many who survived returned home to face new battles. Painful injuries, mental trauma, isolation, disability and poverty.

For many veterans and their families, there was little support. Many suffered in silence.

Eighty years later

Today’s Armed Forces community face very similar battles after service. There may be more help available, but, for too many, the suffering can be unbearable. The silence, deafening.
