As the years roll by and fewer vets are still alive, events like D-Day fade from the memory of Americans.
If you have Amazon Prime, you can buy the longest day for $4.99 which will always be in your video library.
My father-in-law landed in the second wave at Utah beach. Went to visit one Christmas when my son asked Grandpa about WWII. He began telling him stories of the landing and my wife and her four siblings were amazed at what they heard. He had never told any of them he landed in Normandy on D-Day. My friend Bob Baker, of Rochester, NY, didn’t do D-Day, but he spent 14 months in Stalag Luft-1 after his B-29 got shot down. My father-in-law passed in 1995 and my friend Bob passed last May one month shy of his 99th birthday. The don’t make many men of their caliber any longer.
