At Normandy D-Day Commemorations, Crowds Pay Tribute To WWII Veterans

When D-Day veterans visit the Normandy beaches and other World War II sites, they are overcome with emotion. The joy of witnessing the French thanks and goodwill toward those who landed on June 6, 1944. They are filled with sadness as they remember their slain companions and the war in Ukraine, which is currently raging in Europe.

On Monday, 78 years later, as a beautiful sun rose over the wide expanse of sand of Omaha Beach, U.S. D-Day veteran Charles Shay voiced his thoughts for his colleagues who died that day. He told The Associated Press, “I have never forgotten them, and I know that their spirits are here.”

A sage-burning ceremony near the shore at Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer was attended by the 98-year-old Penobscot Native American from Indian Island, Maine.

Shay was a 19-year-old US Army doctor when he arrived on Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944, and now resides in Normandy.

He expressed his regret at seeing war in Europe once more, so many years later.

This year, Shay delegated the remembering ceremony to Julia Kelly, a Gulf War veteran from the Crow tribe, who performed the sage ritual. She said, “Never forget, never forget.” “War is not good at this time, or at any time.”
