A tribute to heroes on the 80th anniversary of D-Day

The thoughts of all at Portland Port today turn to the brave troops who departed from the island exactly 80 years ago today for D-Day. They included thousands of US servicemen bound for a brutal assault on Omaha Beach where casualties were the worst of any of the five landing zones on June 6. Today we commemorate and pay tribute to all of those who fought their way ashore on that historic day and their brothers in arms who made the ultimate sacrifice.
