As we remember Europe's Liberation from Nazi tyranny and honor all the heroes that made it happen.



"Here, we don't just commemorate victory, as proud of that victory as we are; we don't just honor sacrifice, as grateful as the world is; we come to remember why America and our allies gave so much for the survival of liberty at this moment of maximum peril," Obama said.

Their story should remain "seared into the memory of a future world," he said, describing Normandy as "democracy's beachhead."

He said, "It was here, on these shores, that the tide was turned in that common struggle for freedom.

"What more powerful manifestation of America's commitment to human freedom than the sight of wave after wave of young men boarding those boats to liberate people they'd never met?"

  1. The United States was, is and shall ever be the greatest force for freedom the world has ever known.

    Says it all right there. We're all Americans. I, for one, am very proud of that one simple fact. Damn happy about it as well.
