Who do you share your birthday with?

1959 - Colin Quinn, American comedian
1960 - Steve Vai, American musician

The only two names on the list that I recognize. My birthday is important however:

1944 - World War II: Battle of Normandy begins. D-Day, code named Operation Overlord, commences with the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history.
