The world is paying tribute today to all those who took part in the Normandy invasion 75 years ago. It was the first step toward the liberation of Nazi-occupied France and the eventual fall of the Third Reich less than a year later. President Trump and other leaders spoke at the Normandy American Cemetery this morning, where more than nine-thousand Americans are buried.

The number of measles cases in the U.S. is topping one-thousand.  Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar called the milestone a "a troubling reminder" of the importance of promoting vaccinations.  The current outbreak is the worst in nearly three decades.   

A new opening act has been added to the Rolling Stones concert that is scheduled for Denver.  Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats will be joining the show at the Broncos Stadium on August 10th.  The band is Denver-based.  They will be playing alongside the British rock icons as part of their "No Filter" tour that kicks off later this month.
