Ceremony Marking the 74th Anniversary of D-Day
The Friends of the National World War II Memorial will commemorate the 74 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 Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at 11:00 AM.
As part of the ceremony, several WWII and D-Day 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.
If you are a World War II veteran, or know of one, who would like to participate
