Each year hundreds of U.S. armed forces members stationed in Europe, and from U.S.-based units with historical links to D-Day, join service members and civilians from all over Europe to recognize and honor the men and women of the "Greatest Generation" by performing music, marching in parades and honoring the deeds and sacrifices of allied nations during the commemorative period of 1-9 June in the region of Normandy, France. The anniversary of D-Day remains a historic reminder of the strong and unremitting relationship between the United States and our European allies and partners.
The mayors of towns and villages in the Normandy region of France request U.S. participation in ceremonies to commemorate the anniversary of the D-Day landings and subsequent liberation of their communities. This web page is a legacy to that relationship and here you will find past and present commemorations in this town.
