Transcript of Remarks on 40th Anniversary of D-Day Speech

Remarks on 40th anniversary of d-day
speech presented by Ronald Reagan June 6th, 1944 Ronald Reagan gave the speech on june 6th 1984 at the Ranger Dagger memorial site in Normandy France where d-day occurred Ronald Reagan gave the speech in memory of all 225 rangers that risked their lives to protect not only their freedoms but the freedoms of every individual that was affected by the war. out of the 225 men that went to battle only 90 was still able to bear arms when the fighting was over. When Ronald Reagan gave this memorable speech he used many different rhetorical devices. He used pinpointing the enemy, symbolism, euphemisms, ethos, pathos, and juxtaposition. Pinpointing the enemy was used to express the Allie enemies that the rangers faced to overcome the beach on d-day and to begin the hopes of freedom for many countries once again. Symbolism expressed the mood of the day while the
speech was given and how the day was 40 years ago. Reagan expressed how the air was dense and how it was a lonely windswept shore that the men stood on that day. A euphamism is the use of words to make a situation sound more pleasant, like Ronald Reagan did in his speech when he said that 225 men went into battle and only 90 could still bear arms, What he could have or meant to say was that they are dead or severely injured. Ethos means to hear that somebody people know are doing the things said in the speech or to believe that what the speaker says is true and do what they say. being that people heard this speech from Ronald Reagan, the president of the United States, it means more people will listen and listen more contently. Pathos is the emotional appeal of the story to get the reader emotional and want them to hear more. In this speech Reagan talked about the intense battle and how it affect the lives of many people. This caught my attention while reading this story as it made me feel very close to those men. Juxtaposition is when two unlike things blend together to create something great. in WWII and in the speech Ronald Reagan expressed how the two sides fought a great and immense war that tore many countries, cities, towns, and families apart.
