WHEATON, Ill. — From the beaches of Normandy, France, to the western suburbs of Chicago, people are taking time to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

That battle was considered the turning point in the Allies' victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.

Area veterans were on hand for a day of commemoration at Cantigny Park in Wheaton. People who showed up for the event were able to meet the soldiers of D-Day at various times throughout the day.

There were also interactive family activities and performances of soldiers' stories from D-Day.
