Big Events Planned For D-Day 70th Celebration

KSAL StaffMay 27, 2014

Staff members at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene are gearing up for two days of activities to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landing in France.

The events June 6-7 are an extension of a three-year exhibit at the complex to tell the story of World War II.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the supreme Allied commander of Europe in World War II who led the invasion in 1944 that would lead to Germany’s surrender less than a year later.

Karl Weissenbach, director of the Eisenhower library, says the events are meant to thank veterans for their service and to explain the significance of World War II to younger generations.

He says the overall exhibit launched in 2013 has drawn interest from veterans and students alike.
