Sadly, it’s the PR person who came up with the D-Day analogy.

Comment by Amy Johnson

Far be it for me to second guess the NPR story but the Navy played a very key role in D-Day, getting the troops to the beaches and conducting the most effective pre-invasion bombardments.

The Air Force also dropped the first wave of airborne troops behind enemy lines in the early hours of D-Day.

So who in the analogy would be the “Band of Brothers?”

Flame away dear friends.
