65 Years Later

Russ Hardeman WWII vet, with the 101st Airborne.
The group of us talking with Russ.
Russ Hardeman and me. It was a honor to speak with him.

On June 6, 1944 the invasion of the Normandy began. 160,000 American, British, Canadian and some Free French troops landed in the biggest amphibious assault ever planned. 

I along with members of the Coast Artillery Historical Association had an opportunity to meet a WWII vet who had been a member of 101st Airborne during operation Overlord. 65 years later he sat down with us and answered any question we may of had about his experience's during the war.
