Remembering the Sacrifices of D-Day

The Aviation History and Technology Center's Director Brad Hawkins had the opportunity to sit down with Atlanta News First on Thursday, June 6, 2024, to discuss his views on the importance of remembering D-Day and honoring our military's sacrifices, especially on this, the 80th Anniversary of this important day.

Known simply as the "day of days," June 6th is considered by many historians as the turning point for the Allies in World War Two in its mission to rid the world of tyranny.  For the Aviation History and Technology Center, whose mission is to preserve and communicate the critical role our local area has and will continue to play in supporting our country, this day serves as a reminder that the lessons of the past are not forgotten and will ultimately help guide our future.
