The 75th Anniversary of D-Day is 6 June.
Today, however, is 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Rome.
In the following video, you can see among other things the invasion of Anzio, just below the Castelli Romani across the plain of Aprilia. Today, next to Anzio at Nettuno, where the Shrine of St. Maria Goretti is, you can visit the American cemetery. I remember going there with the Great Roman at around time of the 50th Anniversary of D-Day. As I walked among the graves I found myself standing at the stone of a Catholic chaplain who had died 50 years to the day that I found his grave.
At the 7:00 mark in the video you can see the evacuation of the Germans and arrival of the US (etc.) troops in Rome. (Great music.) And take in the blessing from Pius XII at the end.
And Pius addressing the troops in English.
How long before the next liberation of Rome, I wonder.
Thanks to reader BB for the tip.
