The 80th anniversary of D-Day is upon us, and while heads of state are gathering in France, the focus isn’t on them. It’s on the few veterans who are still alive.

The commemoration festivities are being hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife. President Biden and British royals are also participating in the festivities.
