This week there are two anniversaries that need to be recognized. Both are a major part of our nation’s history.
One is D-day which took place 70 years ago on June 6, 1944 when American troops invaded Normandy, France.
By the way, do you know what D-day stands for? It is a military term meaning Deployment Day, or the day on which a combat attack is initiated.
Conrad put on their best showing ever in a state softball tournament taking second place.
It was an exciting three days at the Multi-Sports complex in Great Falls for the home ladies.
Thursday afternoon they opened the tournament against St. Ignatius who co-ops with Arlee and Charlo.
