75 Years Ago Today, Our 'Greatest' Generation Stormed Normandy

June 6, 1944, a day of the largest seaborne invasion in history.

D-Day unfolded 75 years ago today where 156-thousand troops from the United States and allied nations landed on Normandy in France which would ultimately signal the beginning of the end of the Germans participation in World War Two.

The event was marked today in Normandy by President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron.

President Trump addressed a ceremony at the Normandy American Cemetery where nearly ten thousand U.S. soldiers are laid to rest.

Trump said their sacrifice was made for the survival of liberty.

The President also called American veterans of World War Two the greatest generation that ever lived.

Trump then walked a red carpet to the beach where he and the others paused for a 21-gun salute.
