ALEXANDRIA, VA – Saturday, June 1 will be a day to celebrate American history and French culture. The City of Alexandria is partnering with our sister city, Caen, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
On June 6, 1944, over 156,000 Allied troops invaded Normandy, France. This mission led to the liberation of western Europe from Nazi occupation, effectively ending World War II.
