VIDEO: Young Statement on D-Day 75th Anniversary

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement on the 75th anniversary of D-Day, one of the world’s largest amphibious military assaults:

“Today marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day, a turning point toward Allied victory in World War II. This war called on almost 400,000 Hoosiers to defend our nation’s freedom and claimed the lives of approximately 12,000 Indiana service members, leaving another 17,000 wounded” said Senator Young. “On D-Day, American troops stormed the beaches of Normandy to help alter the course of history forever. One of those heroes, Sergeant Carl Mann, a native of Mount Vernon, Indiana, died this year at age 96. Brave men and women like Carl enabled the Allies to defeat Nazi Germany and unthinkable evil. Today, I ask that Hoosiers – and all Americans – join me in remembering these heroes, who embody the selfless service of our Greatest Generation.”
