The Obama administration is opposing a move to add a historic prayer to the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.
On D-Day, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked the nation to join him in prayer. Asking God for courage and faith for the Allied troops, he prayed, "With Thy blessing we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy."
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said adding a plaque with President Roosevelt's prayer to the memorial would remind Americans what they have in common.
But the administration objected, saying officials generally oppose to additions to a completed memorial and including a prayer would attract a lawsuit.
