Washington, D.C. — Celebrating D‑Day. (June 6, 1944 — June 6, 2014) -
“On these beaches the forces of freedom turned the tide to the twentieth century”
“We are the children of your sacrifice. We are the sons and daughters you saved from tyranny’s reach. We grew up behind the shield of the strong alliances you forged in blood upon these beaches, on the shores of the Pacific, and in the skies above.
We flourished in the nation you came home to build. The most difficult days of your lives bought us 50 years of freedom. You did your job; now we must do ours. Let us begin by teaching our young people about the villainy that started this war and the valor that ended it. Let us carry on the work you began here.” President William Jefferson Clinton
