To honor the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, President Trump traveled to Normandy, France and gave a moving tribute to the brave American soldiers who gave their lives that day in defense of Freedom. As Breitbart reports

“These men ran through the fires of hell, moved by a force no weapon could destroy: the fierce patriotism of a free, proud and sovereign people,” he said.

The president paid tribute to the over 60 World War II Veterans who were present for the ceremony.

“You are among the greatest Americans who will ever live,” Trump said. “You are the pride of our nation, you are the glory of our republic, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Trump recalled stories of individual veterans from the historic fight including Ray Lambert — a medic with four purple hearts and three silver stars who was badly wounded in the D-Day landing operation.

A fitting Presidental tribute to the greatest generation of American heroes.
