D Day – 60th Anniversary

Willie Hartley, a British veteran of World War II, wipes away a tear during a ceremony in Caen, France, Friday.
Twenty heads of state have headed to a stretch of coastal France to pay tribute to 135,000 Allied troops who landed at Normandy six decades ago. On June 6, 1944 more than 135,000 Allied forces and 20,000 vehicles poured from boats onto the beaches of northwestern France to invade Nazi-occupied France in the biggest seaborne invasion of all time.
