D-Day at 75 Celebration Event

Did you have a family member who was on active military duty for the Allies on June 6th, 1944 (not necessarily in Normandy)?

Britevents Northwest would like to honor them by reading their name out at the event (whether or not you are attending the Event). We will record the “Roll of Honor” announcement and you will be able to hear it on the website shortly after June 6th. We will also give you the OPTION to extend this honor by featuring their individual story of where they were on June 6th 1944 on this website at some point in the 75th year (to June 5th 2020) and also on our Facebook Page.
