Seven World War II veterans ages 96 to 100 joined President Trump during the VE Day wreath laying ceremony today.
This ceremony, held in Washington, commemorated the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe.
The veterans were originally scheduled to travel to Moscow for a commemorative event, but their plans were cancelled due to coronavirus. Instead, the elderly WWII veterans chose “nation over self,” by joining Trump at the WWII Memorial ceremony, stated White-house officials according to ABC 36.
One of the veterans in attendance was 97-year-old Gregory Melikian, of Phoenix, who sent the coded message to the world that the Germans had unconditionally surrendered.
Thank you for your service and God Bless America!
