verage Americans in their late teens and early 20s and 30s do not know why the date June 6, 1944, is significant in American history. They also don’t know what D-Day means.

Who is at fault? Their American history teachers? Their families for not discussing historic dates with their children? Military veterans’ organizations for not putting more emphasis on the date? The media for not doing more to direct attention to June 6? The blame can be spread out with a lack of education about American history leading the way.
