Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a bipartisan Congressional Delegation to Normandy, France to mark the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Allied D-Day invasion.  On Thursday, June 6, the delegation will take part in observances of the anniversary along with veterans and their families, active duty servicemembers, government and military officials and foreign dignitaries.
