Lawmakers returned from the Memorial Day recess to a shortened week, thanks to the departure of the delegation — led by Speaker
Nancy Pelosi — to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France.
Back in Washington, the capital city marked the WWII victory at Normandy with a memorial at the war’s memorial on the National Mall.
Also this week — the 10th anniversary of the Experience New Hampshire event in the Capitol, complete with life-size animals.
Here’s the entire week in photos:
