Today is the 74th anniversary of the incredible D-Day invasion of Normandy.

On this day in 1944, hundreds of thousands of Allied troops embarked on the mission of freeing Europe from the shackles and chains of the Nazis. (SLIDESHOW: CELEBRATE THE 74TH ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY WITH THESE EPIC PHOTOS)

Naturally, the anniversary of the day always leads to some great tributes. Here are the best ones today honoring the brave men who took up arms to liberate Europe.

There aren’t enough words that any of us could speak that would possibly be enough to thank all the men that fought on D-Day. They didn’t all come home, but they’re all remembered.

We remember them this year, we will remember them next year and we will remember them every single year that passes. It also serves as a reminder that America will never back down. When our boys show up, they mean business.

God bless our military and our incredible country.
