Below is an announcement shared by the Wilmington Veterans Department:
WILMINGTON, MA — This Saturday, June 6, 2020, D-Day will be “DRIVEN TO HONOR” our fallen heroes and honor the 76th Anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We will be meeting at the Wilmington Fourth of July Building at 10:00 AM with antique cars and many patriots to honor our Fallen. We will be driving past all of Wilmington’s fallen heroes squares and monuments around town. Please feel free to wave and fly the American flag as we pass by.
“The road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph. They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest — until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violence of war. For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home. Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.” ― Franklin D. Roosevelt
