On the 70th anniversary of D-Day, President Obama paid tribute to the World War II veterans who partook in the mission that marked a turning point in the war and defined a generation.
“These men waged war so that we might know peace. They sacrificed so that we might be free. They fought in hopes of a day when we’d no longer need to fight. We are grateful to them,” President Obama said to sustained applause at the Normandy American Cemetery.
