Seven decades after Allied troops stormed Normandys beaches and saved France from the Nazis, the surrender-happy nation is turning its back on hundreds of US veterans who want to return next month to mark the invasions 70th anniversary.
France has broken its promise to pay for the vets to fly to this years commemoration, according to Rep. Michael Grimm.
Our chief-of-staff heard it from the French Embassy in DC that they would be flown out to France [for free], said Nick Iacono, a spokesman for the Staten Island congressman.
But when The Post contacted the embassy Friday, the French turned up their noses as if smelling rotten Camembert.

I'm looking for the articles about our government sending the vets over. I'm sure we're doing that, we did it the first time, and it won't even cut into Michelle's vacations much.
No chance. obama’s scheduled a concussion round table. No joke. It’ll cut into his funding for that.
If you expect the current regime to do anything for our military or vets, you are sadly mistaken.
Screw France. They were not worth Americans dying for. They sure are paying the price now with their lovely muslim invaders.
Were it not for the bravery of these men, there would not be a France today.
Fine, then bring our boys home. I would contribute money for that.
We'll pay for it ourselves.
Anybody know how to start one of those crowd funding things?
This concussion thing is intended to keep people from playing football...there are lots of nervous mothers who won't let their boys play football because of this.
Remember when Obama said he would not let his son play football?
In 1966 upon being told that President Charles DeGaulle had taken France out of NATO and that all U.S. troops must be evacuated off of French soil.
To which Dean Rush asked, “does that include all the US soldiers buried in France from WWI and WWII?”
I read William L. Shirer diary of his time in Nazi Germany. He stated many times that the French did not fight at all. There were a lot of French communists and they, along with unions ordered the soldiers not to fight.
If not for D-Day—it would be part of Greater Germania. Maybe France would be a better place?
How many are left? Screw the French! Why Honor them with the presence of Real Hero’s! A cowardly deed by a cowardly Nation!
Oops, should be Dean Rusk.
They fought us in North Africa.
When you play the role of world policeman, do not expect any rewards, bribes, gratitude, appreciation or even a thank you.
With National debt soon to climb over $20 TRILLION mark, USA needs to stop all foreign military adventures. Or else, follow the Roman empire, Third Reich, Alexander the Great, and all other leading power houses who met their demise with foreign military adventures.
They going surrender to Islam okay works for me LOL!
