D-Day veterans will receive 65th commemoration support, says MoD (UK)





The Ministry of Defence has pledged to help to get veterans to Normandy for the 65th commemorations of the D-Day landings.

Following reports that the surviving men who stormed the beaches to liberate Europe from Nazi occupation were not being given any funding, the Government said there was "no question" of its commitment to veterans.
Hinting that there will now be a ministerial presence at the commemorations that will be attended by French, German and American political figures, the MoD said there would be "full participation in an international commemoration of D-Day".
