PORTSMOUTH, England – On the final leg of his three-day state visit to Britain, President Donald Trump will join Queen Elizabeth II and leaders here from around the world in paying respect to Allied service members who 75 years ago took part in the D-Day landings that helped liberate Europe from Nazi Germany's military occupation.

The Normandy landings on June 6, 1994, were the largest land, air and sea invasion in history and Portsmouth Naval Base, near where the commemorations are taking place Wednesday, served as a key launch pad for those forces.
