Honoring Tennessee's World War II veterans on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 2014
D-Day Remembered is a free event to honor Tennessee's World War II veterans on the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy. The program will include lunch and a broadcast of the international commemoration service taking place that day in France.
Keynote address: United States Congressman Jim Cooper - Congressman Cooper was born and raised in Tennessee. His father, Prentice Cooper, led Tennessee's mobilization efforts during World War II as the state's governor from 1939-45. Over 300,000 Tennesseans volunteered for military service and numerous defense-related facilities were established throughout the state. Also, the Tennessee Maneuvers were held from 1941-44. Over 800,000 U.S. Army soldiers from 25 infantry, armor, and airborne divisions trained in 21 Middle Tennessee counties
Event emcee: Tennessee Senator Mark Green - Senator Green came to Tennessee as an Army special operations flight surgeon assigned to the 160th Special Ops Aviation Regiment. He planned and flew on some of the War on Terror's most-covert operations. His most-memorable mission was the capture of Saddam Hussein. Sen. Green interviewed Saddam for six hours on the night of his capture. During this period, Sen. Green was honored as the Army Aviation Association Flight Surgeon of the year. His military career began in 1987 as a rifle platoon leader in the infantry.
