State Representative Danny Bubp (R-Lake Waynoka) has announced that the Ohio House of Representatives passed House Resolution 116, which urges Congress to install at the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. a plaque or inscription with the words that President Franklin D. Roosevelt prayed on June 6, 1944—commonly known as “D-Day.”

“The men that stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day were the pride of this nation,” said Bubp. “They defined the strength of our resolve, and their sacrifice is still appreciated by the world 67 years later. The installation of FDR’s prayer at the WWII Memorial will permanently memorialize their sacrifice.”

On June 6, 1944 the United States Armed Forces and their allies conducted the largest amphibious landing in world history in an effort to liberate mainland Europe from Nazi occupation during World War II. President Roosevelt shared a prayer over the airwaves on the morning of the D-Day landings, asking for courage for the troops, safety and victory.

President Roosevelt prayed, “Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith…”

Rep. Bubp introduced House Resolution 116 on the 67th anniversary of D-Day. It passed with unanimous support in the House.
