Memorable moments of D-Day commemorations

The commemoration ceremonies marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings spanned towns and beaches along a large swath of the French coast.
During the ceremonies, along the beaches and in the towns, veterans were honored and spectators were thrilled and entertained by paratroop jumps, the U.S. Army Europe band and flybys.
Here is a selection of snapshots from and around the many events and commemorations.
