The Allied invasion of Sicily, codenamed Operation Husky, was a major campaign of World War II, in which the Allies took the island of Sicily from the Axis powers (Italy and Nazi Germany). It was a large amphibious and airborne operation, followed by a six-week land campaign and was the beginning of the Italian Campaign.
Husky began on the night of 9/10 July 1943, and ended on 17 August. Strategically, Husky achieved the goals set out for it by Allied planners; the Allies drove Axis air, land and naval forces from the island and the Mediterranean sea lanes were opened for Allied merchant ships for the first time since 1941. Benito Mussolini was toppled from power in Italy and the way was opened for the invasion of Italy. Hitler "canceled a major offensive at Kursk after only a week, in part to divert forces to Italy," resulting in a reduction of German strength on the Eastern Front.
Born July 9, 1943 in Watts, California to William and Gladys Boyd. Father of two daughters, Michele Leslie Washington and LaVon Monie Whaley two sons, Steven Dion Boyd and Erik Damon Boyd.

At the age of 9 I was called to Preach The Gospel of Jesus Christ. After running from my calling, in 1979 at the age of 36 I finally accepted the call of God and began my walk at The First New Christian Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California under the Pastoral leadership of Rev. Robert W. Batts.
