"To the Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force: You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade..."
Dwight D. Eisenhower, June 5, 1944

Each year, Eisenhower NHS hosts special programs, events, and living history to commemorate the anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Nazi-occupied France on June 6, 1944.

For the 80th anniversary in 2024, Eisenhower NHS hosted four days of house tours, living history, and ranger programs. The event was highlighted with a special naturalization ceremony welcoming 17 new citizens to the United States on June 6, 2024.
