Rep. Capuano Commemorates D-Day in Normandy

June 6, 2014

Rep. Michael Capuano joined President Barack Obama, H.M. Queen Elizabeth II, French President Francois Hollande, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon and other dignitaries at today’s ceremonies in Normandy, France, commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day. Observances were held at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach and Sword Beach to honor all those who fought so courageously during the landings on the Normandy coast, and to reflect on their sacrifices.

“June 6, 1944 was a pivotal day during World War Two, a crucial turning point in the war to defeat Nazi Germany. I am proud to have been present, seven decades later, to participate in the observances honoring all the brave Allied forces who stormed the beaches of Normandy”, stated Rep. Capuano.

Thousands of lives were lost during the D-Day invasion, as Allied forces fought to secure a beachhead, liberate France and defeat Hitler. “We will never forget those who died on the battlefield. We think of them today, and of their families who lost precious loved ones. It is truly an honor to pay tribute to the heroes of D-Day,” stated Rep. Capuano.
