Remembering D-Day: Lowey

Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey (D-Westchester/Rockland), the senior Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee, today released the following statement on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings at Normandy, France:

“Seventy years ago today, Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, and changed the course of World War II. Today - and throughout each year - let us recognize the heroic efforts of those brave soldiers who lost their lives, the veterans from the Greatest Generation who remain with us today, and all veterans and service members who share the same devotion to the principles of freedom. We will never forget the acts of valor of the more than 150,000 soldiers who crossed the English Channel that day in 1944. May we always remember that their bravery and sacrifice helped to end one of the worst eras in world history.”

Canadian soldiers stormed Normandy with us seventy years ago today. How can anyone justify spitting on our comands with our foolish actions against the XL pipeline?
