Commemorating D-Day June 6, 1944

As is our tradition at NewsBusters, we are commemorating the 66th anniversary of D-Day. I have found a number of really great videos that I hope properly capture the spirit of the occasion.

First up, this one was supposedly created by an eighth-grader for a history project. Really fabulous.

Next up, actual live footage of the invasion courtesy The History Channel. 

As no film out of Hollywood has better captured what happened 66 years ago on Omaha Beach, the opening scene from "Saving Private Ryan" is available in four parts here, here, here, and here.

Finally, embedded after the break is FDR's speech to the nation that night: 

Thanks to all that saved our planet from Hitler and the Nazis.
