Disabled American Veterans, Post 20, will host a D-Day Memorial Service tomorrow at 9 a.m. at the World War II monument in Washington Square.
Commander Michael Ingham of the DAV and surviving D-Day veterans will place a wreath at the monument to honor the many Haverhill veterans who participated in the invasion of Normandy, France, on June 6, 1944. D-Day led to the collapse of Nazi Germany and an end to the war in Europe.
