Remembering D-Day

Today marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day, when Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy and launched an invasion that would ultimately liberate Western Europe, defeat Nazi Germany, and end World War II.

In honor of their incredible courage, I wanted to share these words from President Biden’s statement today:

“As we reflect on the sacrifices made on D-Day, we are reminded that freedom is not free and it has never been guaranteed. Every generation has to earn it, fight for it, and defend it in the battle between autocracy and democracy — between the greed of a few and the rights of many. Eighty years after our Nation’s brave Airmen, Coast Guardsmen, Sailors, Soldiers, and Marines embarked on D-Day — and as Americans everywhere answered the call to prayer and filled their hearts and homes with hope — may we honor the faith they kept in our Nation and their legacy by upholding the future that they died for — one grounded in freedom, democracy, opportunity, and equality for all.”
