D-Day Observance at the World War II Memorial
Help us mark the 78th Anniversary of D-Day!
Friends of the National Word War II Memorial will commemorate the 78 years since 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France during a special commemoration and wreath presentation at the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC on Monday, June 6, 2022 at 10:00 AM. The program will also be streamed live to Friends' Facebook page for those who cannot attend in-person.
As part of the ceremony, WWII veterans will place wreaths at the Atlantic Arch of the World War II Memorial in memory of the 9,000 Allied soldiers killed or wounded during the invasion.
The ceremony is open to the public; but, registration is recommended.
If you are a World War II veteran, or know of one, who would like to participate in
