Washington, June 11, 2019
(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08) accompanied House Speaker Pelosi, House Republican Minority Leader McCarthy and other members of the House of Representatives to France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Allied forces invading mainland Europe in a turning point to end World War II.
“It was a humbling experience to stand on the ground in Normandy, France on the 75th anniversary of D-Day where so many Americans made the ultimate sacrifice to liberate Europe from Nazi oppression and ensure our freedom. We can honor our heroes by remaining ever vigilant and standing up to the forces of evil throughout the world.”
