World War II veterans honored a day before D-Day anniversary

More than 20 British World War II veterans gathered on Sunday near Pegasus Bridge, one of the first sites liberated by Allied forces from Nazi Germany’s control, as part of commemorations honoring the nearly 160,000 troops from Britain, the United States, Canada and other nations who landed in Normandy on June 6, 1944. Veterans, their families and French and international visitors braved the rainy weather to take part in series of events organized over the weekend and on Monday for the 78th anniversary of D-Day. This year’s D-Day anniversary also comes after two successive years of the COVID-19 pandemic restricted or deterred visitors from coming.
