A significant number of people visit the American Cemetery in Colleville-Sur-Mer, which is located close to Omaha Beach, to pay their respects.
When speaking to a gathering of World War II veterans on the 78th anniversary of D-Day, U.S. Army General Mark Milley said that the ongoing conflict in Ukraine is about “honoring” them since people from all over the world have banded together “against a determined invader.”
He remarked in front of more than 20 veterans and a crowd that numbered the several thousand at the American Cemetery of Colleville-Sur-Mer, which is located in France and overlooks Omaha Beach. The purpose of the gathering was to pay respects to the fallen American forces that had been killed in France.
Additionally, Milley stated that “the world has united together in support of Ukraine’s resistance against a determined invader.” “The battle in Ukraine as a means to pay honor to those who fought in World War II,” said one participant.
Even though Kyiv is more than 2,000 kilometers distant from here, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff claims that it is going through the same atrocities that citizens of France went through during World War II.
