D-DAY ANNIVERSARY

World Leaders Pay Respects

June, 6, 1944 -- the Allies stormed the beaches in France for the final assault on Hitler's forces that ultimately would rescue Europe from the Nazis. Now veterans of the invasion are returning to Normandy to commemorate the 65th anniversary of their battle, an anniversary celebration likely to be among the last with significant numbers of surviving Allied soldiers in attendance."I know it'll be my last trip," a 94-year old veteran of the US 29th Infantry Division attending the ceremony, William Doyle, told the Washington Post. "You said that last time," his fellow division member, Sam Krauss, 92, responded. President Obama will mark the occasion in Normandy with a speech at the US war cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, which overlooks Omaha Beach.
