The Office of the Sheriff is taking a moment, on this day, to reflect on our heroes from World War II that participated in the invasion of Normandy, France. 
The Allied assault was originally named Operation Overlord, but soon became known as just D-Day. Thousands of Allied soldiers lost their lives securing this beach head. By most accounts, this long, hard fought victory, was the catalyst to ending World War II in Europe.
Thirty-four Virginia National Guard soldiers from the town of Bedford were part of D-Day. Nineteen of them were killed during the first day of the invasion, and four more died during the rest of the Normandy campaign. The town and the "Bedford Boys" had proportionately suffered the greatest losses of any American town during the campaign, thus inspiring the United States Congress to establish the D-Day memorial in Bedford.
On June 6, 2001, President George W. Bush dedicated the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA.
