Biden Marks 80th Anniversary of D-Day, Honors World War II Veterans

OMAHA BEACH, France—President Joe Biden delivered remarks on June 6, commemorating the 80th anniversary of D-Day landings at Normandy American Cemetery.

“History tells us freedom is not free. If you want to know the price of freedom, come here to Normandy,” President Biden said during a three-hour ceremony honoring those killed in the Normandy invasion as well as living veterans.

“Democracy is never guaranteed. Every generation must preserve it, defend it, and fight for it. That’s the test of the ages,” President Biden said. “In memory of those who fought here, died here, and literally saved the world here, let us be worthy of their sacrifice.”

During his speech, President Biden underscored the value of strong alliances and partnerships, including NATO.

“Isolation was not the answer 80 years ago, and is not the answer today,” he said.

The president was accompanied by First Lady Jill Biden as well as French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron.
