Biden acknowledges the D-Day anniversary may be the last for many veterans – and vows to fight tyranny

President Joe Biden said Americans must continue to fight against tyranny at what is likely the last major anniversary with living veterans of D-Day.

We’re not far off from the time when the last living voices of those who fought and bled on D-Day will no longer be with us, so we have a special obligation.

We cannot let what happened here be lost in the silence of the years to come.

The fact that they were heroes here that day does not absolve us of what we have do today.

Democracy is not guaranteed. Every generation must preserve it, defend it and fight for it.

In memory of those who fought here, died here and literally saved the world here, let us be worthy of their sacrifice.
