Nations, Veterans, Commemorate 75th Anniversary of D-Day

Normandy Beaches

Three-quarters of a century ago, Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy on what is known as D-Day. It was the largest amphibious invasion ever undertaken, and was a major turning point in WWII, laying the groundwork for the defeat of German forces. Thousands of servicemen perished during this invasion, paying the ultimate sacrifice to protect innocent lives in the fight against great evil. That sacrifice will never be forgotten. 

World leaders, royalty and veterans gathered to commemorate the anniversary in the British city of Portsmouth. Across the globe, Catholic bishops called for prayer and reflection in remembrance of this day and fallen servicemen. ABC News interviewed several of the veterans, who humbly recounted those harrowing hours.
