D-Day commemoration planned for June 6

LAKEPORT – D-Day veterans will gather to remember their experiences at the Normandy invasion during a special ceremony planned for Sunday, June 6, at the Pearl Harbor Survivors' memorial flag mast in Lakeport's Library Park.


The commemoration will begin at 11 a.m.


D-Day is a military term used to designate the date of the launching of an attack or operation.


The term is attached to June 6, 1944, because that was the date of World War II’s most famous D-Day, the largest invasion by sea in history. The code name for the operation that launched the invasion was “Operation Overlord.”


This year marks the 66th anniversary of the historic invasion of Normandy. Western Allied forces advanced on the beaches of Normandy, France from across the English Channel by sea and by air to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi control.


The ceremony honors D-Day veterans from around Lake County and beyond. Please bring information to share of love ones who participated in the invasion.


Guest speakers will be Bill Brunetti and Ronnie Bogner.
