FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                              June 1, 2011                

FDR’s D-Day Landing Prayer Inclusion at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Today, honoring those brave men and women who served our country in WWII, Congressman
Bill Johnson of Ohio’s 6th District has introduced legislation that will place FDR’s D-Day
Landing Prayer at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. - H.R. 2070.

Sixty-seven years ago, on the morning of June 6, 1944, as Allied forces were landing on the
beaches in Normandy, President Roosevelt went to the airwaves and prayed with our nation for
God’s blessing and protection upon our brave fighting men. He prayed,

“Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity….”

OCA President Chris Long stated, “President Roosevelt’s prayer articulated the great crusade
that was underway to liberate millions suffering under tyranny. He noblized the war effort and
paid honor to the fallen and those veterans who fought courageously in the conflict. It is only
fitting that succeeding generations learn of this prayer that was offered at that most poignant
moment in our nation’s history.”
We therefore urge members of Congress to support the FDR D-Day Prayer Project and pass the
legislation that will allow its inclusion at the WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C. We
commend Congressman Johnson and the Congressional co-sponsors of this historic legislation.
