Well—we are half way through—half way through the year 2024. This early June is a special celebration—the 80th Anniversary of D-Day in World War II. The invasion of Europe by the Joint Allied Forces on these beaches in France: Utah, Omaha, Gold, and Juno. The invasion force included 7,000 ships and land craft manned by over 195,000 naval personnel from allied countries.

OPERATION OVERLORD was the code name which involved about 1,500 officers from 2nd Lieutenants to Generals. Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower let it be known the secrecy was of the utmost with so many German spies throughout the United States, England, Canada and other Allied Countries.

Any officers involved in planning was to let Eisenhower personally know if they heard anyone with “Loose Lips.” A 2nd lieutenant reported to Eisenhower about a General—in a bar with a little bit too much to drink— sharing too much secret information.

Eisenhower called the General into his office, dressed him out and told him he was being sent back to the United States in disgrace. The General with “Loose Lips” was Eisenhower’s room mate at West Point, a graduate of the Academy in 1915.
