D-Day & Doughnut Day Anniversaries Today!

D-DayToday we observe the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, along with the 77th Anniversary of National Doughnut Day, another war-time remembrance.

D-Day honors those serving  the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied France. D-Day commemorations have served as a reminder of the shared sacrifice of American, Canadian, British and other Western forces to free Europe from the threat of totalitarianism with history’s largest amphibious offensive.

DonutsNational Doughnut Day, which is observed on the first Friday of June each year, was created by The Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the men and women who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday celebrates the doughnut, otherwise known simply as the “donut,” a tasty, deep-fried, sweetened treat. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day.
