President Trump Attends Flag Presentation Ceremony
D-Day American flag to be displayed at the Smithsonian
President Donald Trump attended a flag presentation ceremony earlier this week at the White House. During a visit from Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the Netherlands, the president was presented with an American flag that flew aboard a ship carrying service members to Normandy on D-Day. The flag had been purchased by two Dutch gentlemen, who wanted to return it to the U.S. as a way to thank them for the sacrifice made during WWII to liberate the Netherlands.
The presentation of the flag came about a month after the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Along with Prime Minister Rutte, U.S. Ambassador Peter Hoekstra and several World War II veterans were in attendance. The flag will be displayed at the Smithsonian's Museum of American History.
