Today marks the 73rd anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. On September 1st, 1939 Germany invaded Poland with hopes of a quick and easy victory. Over the next six years, it would sea saw back and forth across Europe, the Soviet Union, North Africa, and Italy. Countless lives would be lost.
We have this day as a way to honor those who fought and those who would pay the ultimate sacrifice for Victory In Europe. So let us salute and raise a glass to the men and women who helped to bring Hitler and the Germans to a grinding halt in Europe.
