"Be on a war for NPR news. I'm Jake's again or at Utah beach. Normandy while we're on the subject of national observances this week, a US park. Police spokesman confirmed that President Trump plans to deliver a public address at the Lincoln Memorial on the fourth of July in a letter to the president House, Democratic leaders asked the president to reconsider. They argued that his plans would create the appearance of televised partisan campaign rally on the mall. All at public expense. Now that is definitely a break with recent tradition. When presidents have enjoyed the festivities, but in a low key way, leaving town or hosting guests to watch the fireworks with them. But we were wondering about earlier times thankfully, Ronald Shaffer has looked into that. He's a former editor at the Wall Street Journal, and he wrote about this for the Washington Post, welcome back. Thanks so much for joining us here. Michelle. So you said that Thomas Jefferson was the first to whole July fourth celebrations at the White House in eighteen one, because he was the first to live in the White House during the fourth of July what did he do Jefferson? Just had a little reception for some citizens into fficials, and they had some punch in some cakes, and they had some talion position in the play as a music, and this sort of set the trend for future, presidents, where they had receptions during the July, four something very low key. In eighteen forty one John Tyler had a dinner on that day. He had turtles soup with made from a three hundred pound turtle. They voted from Key West Florida and then that night they walked across the street to Lafayette tour. They watched the fireworks, which has been part of the July fourth celebration for the very beginning. So it seems as though the previous presidents had pretty low key celebrations. The turtle soup was kind of fancy, but the letter from House Democratic leader, state that the fourth of July celebrations have always been quote nonpartisan and a political is that true. That's pretty much true. The, the only president whoever spoke during the celebration in Washington was Harry Truman in nineteen fifty one he spoke at the Washington Monument, and it gave a speech on the Korean war. But of course back in those days, he probably had maybe two secret service agents with him today the security. Is much much more elaborate. And so what is what does that say to you that it just changes the character of the event is what you're saying? Well, I know when I've akin events where the president's going to be there, I usually have to go through metal detectors to get in. So it will be a lot more complicated to speak from the Lincoln Memorial July fourth than anytime in the in the past fairly close to this was probably nineteen seventy when some friends of president Nixon got up an honor America day televised show at the Lincoln Memorial. This was during the Vietnam war, but the celebration also brought out a lot of protesters to some of them were skinny dipping in the reflective pool. And there was some tear-gas sort around. It turned out to be kind of a mixed event. I see so so so as you mentioned that president Truman gave a speech on the fourth in Washington about the progress. Of the Korean war. You know, you mentioned that president Nixon videotape message that played on the mall, the fourth of July ceremonies nineteen seventy. Which didn't go over well with sort of everybody, what do you make about President Trump's decision to as a number of media outlets put it insert himself into this event? I think the fear is it will become a political historically has been totally nonpartisan strictly a celebration of the country, and not of any political party. And I guess the worry now is that Trump is going to be the grant dependence day. Do you think that people will do have any sense of how other people are reacting to this? We know how the Democrats are reacting to this. They're they are not pleased polarizing figure anyway. So, you know it has to be said, just like president Nixon was a polarizing figure, so do you have a sense of how you think it'll affect the celebration? Well, I think there's still have a pretty good turnout. Either way. The fact is that most people go, there just to see the fireworks and not really concerned about the politics of the whole matter. But a lot of presidents did give speeches on July fourth. But they would go out of town in nineteen seventy six the vice intentional year or they had a million people in the mall, and I was one of them, the Garo forgave speech at Independence Hall, Philadelphia, flew back to Washington and watch the fireworks from the White House with his wife, Betty, traditionally, this is how presidents have celebrated the July. Fourth is by watching the fireworks from the White House. Maybe hosting some army families military families or going out of town to give a speech, but never except for Truman as I said to actually get involved into the actual ceremony themselves that is row Shafer. He's a former editor at the Wall Street Journal, and he's author of the carnage. Campaign about the eighteen forty presidential race run, thank you so much. Thank you. Michelle. We turn now to the women's World Cup which has officially kicked off in France. Jamaica will make its debut as the underdog, they are the lowest ranked team in the tournament, but a couple of years ago. Jamaica didn't even have a national women's soccer team tomorrow, the reggae girls, as they are known take on Brazil NPR's, Jason Bobi has this report..

"The hour. Newsradio eleven nineteen king, he axes. Hi, welcome back. Rush Limbaugh back in two thousand thirteen I had just returned from a trip to France, and to the Normandy beaches, and rather than reflect. I'm just going to replay my comments from that day, actually June fifth. It was actually the same day as one years ago, yesterday two thousand thirteen the whole d day invasion, particularly Omaha beach and fund. Walk have mesmerized me. I've been immersed in them, and I've learned so much just in the last number years as celebrations of taken place things I didn't know when I thought I knew at all. A grand active deception. The Germans weren't sure where in Normandy all along the northern coast of France. The allied invasion was going to take place. They weren't sure when it was a tremendous without getting into great detail on this. The Eisenhower his command had done a terrific job in deception building fake installations along the beach indicate they were coming their training in fake locations. Germans, even suspected that the invasion might hit Norway, and not France. The deception was so good that the German commander Rommel wasn't even site on d day he was taking a couple of days off. I think it was his anniversary with his wife and Paris are back in Germany or something. The phone call early in the morning. Guess what general or under assault, here, it was a tremendous even with that active deception. The number of Americans were killed allied forces killed stunning. Two hundred thousand part of the invasion, all along the north coast of France and its importance that in the battle of bulge in crucial to stopping what was happening in Europe and preserving Europe and the rest of the world for freedom. But these Americans landing on Omaha it, well all the way down Juno beach, Utah beach. At wonder they were sitting ducks German installations were high up on the hills. There were bombing runs in the case of plunder hawk there were bombing runs. The ninth army air force was launching bombing runs. And the number of seagoing efforts to assist in the ground salt, which was conducted by the Rangers. Arrange your second battalion. Now, this was my first time at one to walk. I had been this place in my mind, but I'd never seen it other than pictures. It's one hundred plus feats trait up. The Rangers land on the beach ships launch ladders and other things on the sides of the cliff to assist, the Rangers and climbing up. Germans are shooting down on them and the Rangers just kept going big guns hundred fifty five millimeter guns up there. They just kept climbing even as the Germans are down. Now, one thing, the Germans because of deception fought that Utah beach was going to be the focus and they had moved many of the gun, installations, one, walk a mile west of plunder walk. They still have some guns, but the big guns had been moved on the orders Rommel. Interestingly, the ranger rank and file landing on the beach in climbing, the clip they were not told the ranger to leadership knew that the guns had been moved, but the ranger rank and file had not been told it was part of motivation. They had to. They had to get that hill. They had to get the German, they had to get those installations, whether the Germans were in them, and they had to shut all that all the way up and down the beach. They had to secure that area,.

"Country, made sure. Millions of them earned a college education opening up opportunity on an unprecedented scale. They married those sweethearts bought new homes, and raise families and built businesses lifting up the greatest middle class. The world has ever known. And through it all. They were inspired. I suspect by memories. Fallen brothers. Memories that drove them to live their lives today as best they possibly could. Whenever the world makes you cynical, stop and think of these. Whenever you lose hope. Stop and think of these men. Thank Balsam Colwell, who was told he couldn't pilot a plane without a high school degree. So he decided to jump out of a plane instead. And he did here on day without first airborne when he was just sixteen years old. Harry caucus, the doer son of Russian immigrants who fudged his age at enlistment.

"Welcome back to the Memorial Day special from CBS News Radio. I'm killed gross. There is no higher military honor than the medal of honor its roots. Go back to awards given at the very founding of this country. But the medal of honor specifically was established during the civil war, some of the people who have been awarded the medal of honor. You don't know if they survived the battles not all bid, they went back to life as it had been, however, change they might have been by what they had seen in done some you do no, such as United States, Senator. But Kerry, who joins us now. Good to have you with us. How are you? Thank you. You survived in Vietnam, where you are navy seal all, though, at the time you were leading your men on an attack, and extraction that, that was not a given. No, it's not a given. We offer against Saffire unit, and we actually got their little bit late trouble. But that. That. And I was in here, and you know, manage to hold together until they get out, just to get get past your modesty. Very, very briefly. Tell the story of you and your men, scaled sheer, three hundred fifty foot cliff on entree island split into a couple of groups you came down in enemy camp meant you got hit by a grenade. The cost of the lower part of your right leg. And while losing blood in nearly unconscious still led the team in the attack had your radio man, give the order for the crossfire from the second team, and then managed to defend that extraction site to get your men home. Let me talk about something that happened after the Vietnam, war also happened after the Korean war, which was. So many of our wars preceding. Those two words were wars were American celebrated clear victories World War, One World War Two and the people came home to glory. And honor, even people who were warded, our, our highest medal, such as yourself. And then so many people who, who risk their lives in battle. Came back to a country that wasn't as enamored of our veterans as they were before. And that became difficult. No. It's true Korean somebody's was worse than numb. Because it's accurately often forgotten war and didn't end in a, you know. It was bad at Phnom war was so did end of the peace agreement with Korea. It's an armistice continues to this day. So more of a ceasefire than an end so, yeah, I think both of those wars were unhappy war United States, although it's hard to stand on the thirtieth parallel and separate south and North Korea. Not be grateful. United States intervened and Andro the North Koreans with support of the union out. Yeah. They were unhappy time in just a war. Sure you recall, it was lots going on late, nineteen sixties tickly civil rights riots streets and nineteen seventy thousand bombings, the twenty five people killed ten we're long fickle. So it was a difficult time put a mile but it was difficult and also wore generally, and I think this is little understood by people who are not in combat is difficult to talk to people want to hear the stories to, to some degree, but. There's for those who saw action. They're not just good stories. There are moments of horror, sometime civilians killed through no fault of, of their own visions of good friends meeting their death, despite all your efforts and memories that you really don't want in your own head anymore, much less put into that of your spouse, children, and grandchildren. And I think ninety three WBZ voice wrote a book called the soican black folk, and he just guide graces defining issue of the day and used a metaphor, which I think, I think it applies of people who've been in war, people haven't metaphor was bail separated the two races. And, and I think that it's true. It's very difficult. If not impossible. To share it to describe it for me on Memorial Day. I've been making effort commitment to remember, you know, gore and Solano and Bomar and Collins and ban, only, and all these guys that, you know, they, they, they did not nineteen seventy two they, they didn't see nineteen seventy eight they didn't. They didn't experience the good and the bad times over that. They've never been to come home and good marriage, go to college and have kids and all that. They didn't they didn't have a recollection of, you know, what, what came to be, which is much greater respect for better. And so I I it's not easy to remember and I don't think it can be shared every speech, I've ever given I've, I've one hundred percent sir didn't transfer to the audience is understanding. So it's better for me on Memorial Day, just a. Quiet with the memory of, of. These men that I knew that that died and their lives. And, and so it. Because I think it did. It makes it more likely that when I'm having conversations with people about the medal of honor, which I received I'll have people got nothing. I am not just modest about it. I believe strongly that the metal in recognition of people whose whose, you know, actually ever observed or your syrup by somebody didn't like, or somebody couldn't write didn't make its way up through the chain of command, that results in the not say the action is significant. I'm just saying that what, what, what you what I acquire when I when I remember young Toronto and Gordon Bomar column Vanoy, but I remember is useful, both being grateful. But also Quiring sufficient amount of humility that, I can talk to people about why important force to make peace rather than war possible that thing you said about the people who didn't make it through and remembering. Them, my uncle who passed a couple of years ago at the age of a hundred one landed in Utah beach, and he could he could tell the stories and it came to the point where I think he enjoyed telling some of the stories, but the only time I saw him completely stopped in his tracks was he got a call from somebody who found out that his father had been in the same company as my uncle and wanted to know if he knew him. Well, my own cool was standing right next to him. When he was killed on Utah beach, and he, he turned to me and and said, I don't know it was a letter that was sent to him. And he said, I don't know how to answer this. I don't know what to say and he was quite for weeks before he answered that. And yet, these are not easy. Thanks, the stories of so many of these people who could not tell the stories from the selves are, are important. I been sent so gosh, nineteen ninety then going back to Vietnam for variety of reasons I try to contribute the margin to first President Bush's effort to get several copy. So they can begin the process of normalising relations with the non the first of in Cambodia second, answer the question about ws and let me normalize in nineteen ninety five some language, to, you know, to use the Fulbright program as way to help Vietnam, acquire education capacity doing doing consulting any five or now working undergraduate school, and it's quite moving because but it's difficult as, as I say. Making his heart and, and it's can be harder to those who participate in a lot of. People on both sides get angry. They get shameless hazing. They get hurt. And they get hard. No home player song can ever right? Or wrong inflicted in Dur and it, it makes it difficult to, you know, to make peace with a former enemy, but we have and relations between the United States. Vietnam, quite good today. Been. Don't been over there twice a, you know, before bottle went there and President Bush went over there, but Clinton went over there, and, you know, we've, we've beginning to build a real friendship though, with a with a former enemy. It's not possible desirable and important to Vietnam, vets besides precedents yourself. John McCain was over there. I have Vietnam veteran friends of, of lesser public renown, who one of them is settled in clung tree, who's who's working with the people there. It's been interesting to watch that. I, I don't know that we've ever seen anything quite like that before I don't think it is. I don't think there is another two countries on earth that had the same kind of relationship of the United States, and be a non that end up in the terrific series. It can burns. Pretty on the Vietnam war. Very moving statement by by northeasterly soldier, who something I consider to be quite important. He said, look, I used to think that the demonstrations against the war in Vietnam, recurring in the United States. It was a sign of weakness. He said, now, I realize strength, coming up more with medal of honor winner. And former United States Senator Bob Kerrey on why Vietnam, vets are going back to the country. They fought.
