Trump read FDR's D-Day prayer read to America after its sons stormed Normandy's beaches

In a nationwide radio message on the evening of June 6, 1944, President Roosevelt led the nation in prayer.

President Trump read the following excerpt today:

'Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavour, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

They will need Thy blessings. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces 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.

'Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom. And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade.

Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.'


On behalf of the free world, thank you' The Queen pays tribute to D-Day heroes at 75th anniversary commemorations after veteran gets a standing ovation from Trump and world leaders for his moving speech

The Queen today paid tribute to 'my generation' as she saluted the heroism of D-Day veterans at a 75th anniversary event where a British veteran received an ovation from the monarch and Donald Trump.

More than 300 heroes who survived the invasion of France in 1944 were guests of honour and a group of veterans stood and saluted the thousands who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting Hitler's Germany on Normandy's beaches.

Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel and Justin Trudeau  were among the politicians who gathered in Portsmouth exactly 75 years after US General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, gave the final order to invade German-occupied France with the message: 'The eyes of the world are upon you'.

Sergeant John Jenkins MBE, 99, who was born and raised in the Hampshire city, was in the Pioneer Corps on D-Day and landed on Gold Beach on June 8, and gave a moving, humble and funny speech that brought world leaders and royalty to their feet.

Queen thanks D-Day heroes for showing courage that helped free the world

Your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,

When I attended the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, some thought it might be the last such event. But the wartime generation - my generation - is resilient, and I am delighted to be with you in Portsmouth today.

75 years ago, hundreds of thousands of young soldiers, sailors and airmen left these shores in the cause of freedom. In a broadcast to the nation at that time, my Father, King George VI, said: '…what is demanded from us all is something more than courage and endurance; we need a revival of spirit, a new unconquerable resolve...' That is exactly what those brave men brought to the battle, as the fate of the world depended on their success.

Many of them would never return, and the heroism, courage and sacrifice of those who lost their lives will never be forgotten. It is with humility and pleasure, on behalf of the entire country – indeed the whole free world – that I say to you all, thank you. 

He said: 'I was 23 years old when I landed on Gold Beach. I was terrified, I think everyone was. I  was just a small part in a very big machine. You never forget your comrades because we were all in it together'.

He added: 'It is right that the courage and sacrifice of so many is being honoured 75 years on. We must never forget.'

Afterwards the Queen paid tribute to the 'resilient wartime generation' - she called 'my generation' - and said: 'Seventy-five years ago, hundreds of thousands of young soldiers, sailors and airmen left these shores in the cause of freedom.

'Many of them would never return, and the heroism, courage and sacrifice of those who lost their lives will never be forgotten. It is with humility and pleasure, on behalf of the entire country - indeed the whole free world - that I say to you all, thank you.

A flypast of Spirtfires and Red Arrows streaked across the sky at the end of the moving ceremony, where Prince Charles was seen wiping his eyes.

Afterwards Mr Trump met D-Day veterans with the Queen today before the President said farewell and thanked her for his three-day state visit telling her: 'It was a great honour to be with you'.

As they posed for the final photograph of his three-day state visit to Britain, the President told the Queen: 'It was a great honour to be with you' and was heard saying: 'Great woman. Great, great woman'.
