Bush Pays Homage to W.W. II Sacrifices

President Bush visits the U.S. military cemetery outside Maastricht in the Netherlands to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of fighting in Europe during World War II. The president's visit followed a stop in Latvia Saturday. Later Sunday, he flies to Moscow, where he will meet with President Vladimir Putin before ceremonies to be held Monday.

At the cemetery, President Bush, joined by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, paid homage to the "terrible price" paid by World War II soldiers as the Allies fought against tyranny.
