Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer

President Obama spoke in an address to veterans during the 70th D-Day commemorations in Normandy. Nearly 10,000 tombstones overlook the D-Day landing beach which is now known as “Bloody Omaha”.

“We come to remember why America and our allies gave so much for the survival of liberty at its moment of maximum peril,” Obama said. “And we come to tell the story of the men and women who did it, so that it remains seared into the memory of the future world.”
