SCOTT SIMON, host:

This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon.

President Obama is in France this morning, paying tribute to the Allied soldiers who began the liberation of Europe on D-Day 65 years ago today. President Nicolas Sarkozy and Prince Charles of Great Britain and aging veterans of that Normandy invasion are with the president to honor the surviving soldiers and remember their fallen comrades.

NPR's Don Gonyea has been traveling with the president. He joins us now from the American Cemetery in Normandy. Good morning, Don.
