Today is the 75th Anniversary of D-Day… the most famous Seaborne Invasion in history… which saved Western Europe and indeed the world from Nazi domination.

I’d like to share a little known story of an event that happened eleven years after D-Day involving General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who led the invasion. It was 1955, Eisenhower was now President of the United States and he’d accepted an invitation to give the commencement address at the University of Pennsylvania - where his brother Milton was President. The day before the Graduation Ceremonies - which were to be held outdoors - Milton became concerned about forecasts calling for strong winds and heavy rains on the big Day. Milton called his brother Dwight at the White House to warn him about the impending storms and to ask it he should move the ceremony indoors. Eisenhower replied, “That’s your decision Milton. I haven’t worried about the weather forecast since June 6, 1944”.
