Support the D-Day Prayer Memorial
Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) is continuing his effort to pass legislation to install an inscription at the Washington, DC World War II Memorial in honor of the D-Day national prayer of President Franklin D. Roosevelt on June 6, 1944. The prayer was originally read by President Roosevelt over the radio on June 6, 1944 before the invasion of Normandy by American, British, and Canadian forces. “Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith. They will need Thy blessings. Their 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.” Click here to read the full text of the prayer. Contact your Representative or Senator today and let them know you support the World War II Memorial Act! Call: (202) 224-3121.
