- COLLEVILLE-SUR-MER, France (AP) – U.S. and other allied troops have joined veterans of the D-Day invasion and families of fallen soldiers to mark 74 years since the massive military operation that change the course of World War II.
- Amid fog and wind, ceremonies were held Wednesday at the American military cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer and along the Normandy beaches and cliffs where Allied forces landed in Nazi-occupied France.
- Thousands of U.S., British, Canadian and French troops launched a combined naval, air and land assault as dawn was breaking on June 6, 1944.
- The invasion weakened the Nazis hold on Western Europe after they suffered a punishing defeat in Stalingrad in the east.
- Wednesdays ceremonies were relatively low-key, while bigger events are planned for the 75th anniversary next year.

- TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Imagine getting from Tampa to Orlando in just a few minutes!
- Passengers would travel in a pod through a low pressure tube at speeds up to 700 miles an hour.
- But key players of transportation planning are certainly open to the idea.
- There are a lot of people who come to Florida for the great theme parks in Orlando area and are looking to get to the beach.
- Clearwater is one of the highest rated beaches in the country if not the world so having a better connection between Orlando and Clearwater, Saint Pete would be important for us, said Beth Aldean, who is with the Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization.
