The claim [posted on this board]  that 2010, 2011, and 2012 were the only years since World War II in which an American president failed to attend D-Day commemorations is patently false, however. This is easily confirmed by checking the U.S. State Department historian's list of presidential visits to France.
Here are the facts:
  • The first American president to participate in a D-Day commemoration in Normandy was Ronald Reagan on the 40th anniversary of the invasion, June 6, 1984. He visited only that one time during his entire eight-year term.
  • Reagan's successor, George H. W. Bush, never attended a D-Day commemoration at all.
  • Bill Clinton attended only once, on the 50th anniversary of D-Day in 1994.
  • George W. Bush attended only twice during his eight-year term of office: on Memorial Day 2002 and on the 60th anniversary of D-Day in 2004. (He also, in 2001, dedicated a stateside D-Day memorial in Virginia.)
  • As stated above, Barack Obama has attended only once during his term of office, on the 65th anniversary of D-Day in 2009.

Between 1944 and 2012 — a span of 68 years — exactly four U.S. presidents have attended D-Day memorial ceremonies a combined total of exactly six times.
 Barack Obama was one of the four.
