Newspaper failed to note D-Day significance

Sunday, June 6, was the 66th anniversary of D-Day – the Normandy invasion that marked a major turning point in the outcome of World War II and led to the liberation of Europe.

Some 2,000 men gave their lives that fateful day so that we could enjoy the liberty we have today.

I was saddened and disappointed – but unfortunately, not surprised – that there was no mention of this in Sunday’s edition of The Lancaster News. It is ironic that you could devote a banner headline and a quarter-page self-congratulatory article to the awards recently won by the newspaper, but not even one word in remembrance of the sacrifices made on one of the most important days in the history of our nation.

You should be ashamed.

All of your readers – especially all military veterans – deserve an apology.
