Commemorating the 68th anniversary of D-Day

Sixty-eight years ago today, American and Allied soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines stormed the heavily-fortified beaches of Normandy, displaying uncommon bravery and ultimately turning the tide of World War II against Nazi Germany.  We owe a debt of gratitude to those who gave their lives in the cause of freedom and justice, and who will forever be remembered for their courage and determination in the face of unimaginable challenges.

I am proud to represent servicemembers and veterans across Pennsylvania who have served our nation honorably throughout our history.  We should pause and reflect on the extraordinary sacrifices made by our brave men and women on June 6, 1944 and every day as they serve our nation around the world.
