June Commemorations


In 2024 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, we are preparing for two exciting anniversaries to advance the legacy and principles of President Reagan.  As luck would have it, they take place one day after the other this coming June. 

On June 5, 2024, we will be commemorating the 20th anniversary of the passing of President Reagan.  We feel it is important to gather, reflect on our 40th President’s impact, and then look forward to what our future holds.  On June 6, 2024, the country and the world will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, an occasion marked brilliantly by President Reagan 40 years ago on that day in 1984 when he delivered one of his most famous speeches highlighting the selfless and heroic actions of the “boys of Pointe du Hoc.”
