Remembering D-Day: NJ veterans share their memories 70 years later

 A must watch on this 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion...

Eleven D-Day veterans who crossed the English Channel into history shared their memories of the Normandy invasion to mark the 70th anniversary of the Allied landings in June 6, 1944. The casualties were heavy -- more than 4,000 troops were killed -- but the battle helped set the stage for the liberation of France from German occupation. Less than a year after D-Day, Hitler was defeated. Still, the veterans are haunted by the memories of the bloodshed on the beaches and the men who never returned from Normandy.
