ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - D-Day marks the day troops stormed the grounds of Normandy, France during World War II.  It was the largest invasion by the sea and eventually led to victory over Germany.  There was a ceremony held this morning and President Obama gave a rousing speech about the contribution of our veterans.

"Let us recognize your service once more.  These men waged war so that we might know peace.  They sacrificed so we might be free.  They fought in hoped of a day that we might no longer need to fight. We are grateful to them," said Obama.

More than 150,000 American, British, Canadian and other allied D-Day troops risked and gave their lives to defeat Adolf Hitler's third reich.

    Such a rousing speech that he read from his teleprompter, written by a writer. He is such a reader, I mean leader.

    “rousing speech”?!?! I think I’m going to be ill. Obama hates the military and the veterans. …and who’s this “Staff Writer” who apparently forgot all of his/her history and writing lessons to fawn over dear leader?

    BTW – it was the beach at Normandy that was “stormed” by US, British, Canadian and free French forces. The “sea” didn’t do any invading. Oh and thank you again for making it about “dear leader” instead of the veterans – makes it all the more “special” (I’m off to the latrine…)
