Menendez Statement On 65th Anniversary Of D-Day

Washington - US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today released the following statement on the 65th anniversary of D-Day:

"65 years ago today, our nation's Greatest Generation swept in with the tide on the beaches of Normandy and turned the tide against the forces of fascism and hate. In doing so, they changed the course of World War II and world history. We owe those veterans, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice, so much, and we honor them today and every day. Their contribution to freedom across the globe will never be forgotten."

"It is tremendously important to me in ensure that our nation continues to honor and care for World War II veterans. In Congress, we have successfully fought to increase the Veterans budget, which had been short-changed. I have championed legislation to properly fund State Veterans Cemeteries, because these American heroes deserve dignified final places of rest. I will continue to work on their behalf in the US Senate."
