D-Day at 75: Stories Beyond the Beach

News

This year marks 75 years since the start of Operation Overlord which began on June 6th when Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France.  

Also known as D-Day, the invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history.  

D-Day also had a major impact on our area as the town of Bedford lost more men per capita on D-Day than any other community in the United States. 

In this special, D-Day at 75: Stories Beyond the Beach, WFXR shares the memories of veterans who served in World War II and stories from the community it impacted the most.
