For those too young too remember; here is a photo of the The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France memorializing the fallen US soldiers of the D-Day Invasion to retake Europe from the Nazis.
The large white areas in the photo are created by thousands of white crosses and Star of David grave marker.
There is also a D-Day Monument in Bedford , VA ... a relatively short 200 mile helicopter ride from the White House.
In all the years since D-Day 1945, there are only three occasions when the sitting President of the United States of America failed to go to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed during the Invasion.
Only Three Times...
The occasions were:
1. Barack Obama 2010
2. Barack Obama 2011
3. Barack Obama 2012
For the past 68 years, every single president, except Obama, has paid tribute to the fallen American soldiers killed on D-Day.
This year, instead of honoring the soldiers, he made a 3,000 mile campaign trip on Air Force 1 to California to raise funds for the upcoming election.
