“We must listen to the echoes of the voices of the brave men who scaled the cliff at Pointe du Hoc on D-Day. They’re not asking us to do their job. They’re asking us to do our job. To protect freedom, defend democracy, and stand up to aggression abroad and at home.”

— U. S. President Joe Biden Speaking on the 80th Anniversary of D-Day at Pointe du Hoc, Normandy, France, June 7, 2024.
