Thank you to everyone who made D-Day Pittsburgh 75 possible!

D-Day Pittsburgh 75 is a collaboration across our region to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944, a pivotal event in the Allied Victory in World War II. We’re planning a series of public programs to honor our veterans, educate the public about D-Day and WWII, and highlight the role that Pittsburgh played in the war. We invite participation across our community and welcome planning help and program ideas to include on our calendar the first week of June 2019.
