On June 6, 2015, the world honored the 71st anniversary of D-Day. People gathered at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, Virginia, a town that lost the largest percentage of its men to the Normandy Invasion. Those gathered included Mary Sigillo Barraco, an American living in Nazi-occupied Belgium during World War II, and Col. Arnold D. Gabriel, who fought on the Normandy beaches and survived to become an Air Force Band conductor. People from across Europe also came to the Memorial in honor of all allied forces who lost their lives on that day.
