I have an ongoing project to make posts for mental_floss articles I wrote way back when that I do not have an archive for. Here's another one. Somehow I neglected to post this on June 6, which I had planned.
On the anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, we should take time to remember some of the many heroes of the various battles that took place as the Allies stormed their way into France during World War II. Here are some who received the Medal of Honor for their bravery and selflessness, in an article I wrote for Mental Floss.
