D-Day 65th anniversary to be commemorated Saturday

LAKEPORT – A special local commemoration for the 65th anniversary of the D-Day invasion at Normandy will be held on Saturday, June 6.

The public is invited to the 11 a.m. ceremony, which will take place at the Pearl Harbor Memorial Flag Mast at Library Park in Lakeport.

D-Day – June 6, 1944 – was part of the largest military invasion in history. On that day, the Allied forces landed in France to take back Europe from the Nazis and their allies.

The Allied forces invaded by air and ground from June 4 through 14, 1944.

Veterans of the D-Day launching at Omaha or Utah beaches and support groups afloat or in the air will be honored on June 6.

Guest Speaker will be Bob Tucker of Clearlake, a World War II veteran.

Various veterans groups are seeking any survivors of the D-Day launchings, who are encouraged to come forward and be honored. Veterans of D-Day wanting to participate can contact the Lake County Veterans Service Office, 707-263-2384.

Family members who would like to participate of behalf of their loved ones are also encouraged to attend.
