June 6, 1944, General Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered troops to storm the beaches of France to begin the liberation of Europe from Germany. 70 years later, we honor those brave soldiers who scaled the cliffs in the fight for freedom. On Saturday, May 31st, Cigar Dave hosted the D-Day 70th Anniversary Tribute to remember the heroic acts performed that day to preserve freedom.
To the right is the picture of my unlit cigar next to Microphone 2 in Command Center Alpha, Humidor 1A today. This one unlit cigar shall symbolize the entire Allied effort on #DDay.

The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world. ~ Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower June 6, 1944
