D-DAY TRIBUTE

The Normandy Chapter placed a wreath at the NORMANDY AMERICAN CEMETERY to commemorate D-DAY (JOUR-J in French) on behalf of DEMOCRATS ABROAD FRANCE on 6 June 2021. This was the day in 1944 that Allied forces landed in Normandy paving way for the liberation of France.


MEMORIAL DAY 2021

Ceremonies at the NORMANDY AMERICAN CEMETERY were closed again this year because of the virus, but the staff ensured that the fallen are never forgotten.  


MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE

Join us on Monday 31 May 2021 from 18:30-20:30 for a MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE to our veterans and military families. US veterans will tell their stories about whom they would like to honor on this day. RSVP here for Zoom link: https://www.democratsabroad.org/.../memorial_day_action...
