Biden Almost Forgot To Honor Troops On D-Day

President Biden issued a last minute statement on the 78th anniversary of D-Day, after forgetting to mention the historic day in any of his previous remarks.

"Today, we mark 78 years since D-Day and honor those who answered duty's call on the beaches of Normandy," Biden wrote in a tweet. "We must never forget the service and sacrifice in defense of freedom, and we must strive every day to live up to the ideals they fought to defend."

Last year, the Biden White House completely forgot the anniversary and let the day go by without mention.

Biden did send Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, to Normandy, where he compared the Normandy invasion to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"The fight in Ukraine is about honoring these veterans of World War II," Mark Milley said overlooking Omaha Beach in Normandy. "It’s about maintaining the so-called global rules-based international order that was established by the dead who are buried here at this cemetery.

Milley added that the world is "again seeing death and destruction on the European continent."

During their first year in office, former Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump all honored the D-Day anniversary in some way. On the D-Day anniversary in 1984, President Ronald Reagan gave one of his most famous speeches.

Biden's stint as commander in chief has so far included the widely acclaimed botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, which he wanted scheduled to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the 9-11 atrocities, which were partly planned in that country.

On June 6, 1944, Allied troops arrived by 7,000 boats on the beaches code-named Omaha, Utah, Juno, Sword, and Gold. On that single day, 4,414 Allied soldiers – more than half of whom were Americans – died. Over 5,000 people were injured.
