Tribute Paid to Troops of D-Day

On June 6, 2007, Defense Secretary Robert Gates pays tribute to the troops who landed at Normandy 63 years ago.

Gates is also tying their memory to the challenge of today’s war on terrorism.

The Secretary of Defense said the U.S. and allied soldiers landed in France on D-Day to destroy forces of oppression in hopes the world could one day know peace.

The D-Day invasion in 1944 turned the tide of World War II.
