PARIS – Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) is joining a bipartisan Congressional Delegation to Normandy, France, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Allied D-Day invasion. The delegation is being led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

On Thursday, June 6, members of the Congressional Delegation will join veterans, active duty servicemembers, government officials, and foreign dignitaries at ceremonies to observe the anniversary.

“The world will never forget the day that Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy in the name of liberty and freedom,” said Congressman Langevin, a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee. “These heroes prevailed against tyranny and forever changed the course of history. It is a distinct privilege to join my Congressional colleagues in Normandy to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day and to pay our respects to those who courageously served in this historic battle.”
