A 10- Day Journey For North Texas D-Day HeroesA group of North Texas D-Day heroes arrived home Monday afternoon at DFW Airport. The amazing men spent the last 10 days reliving a journey they took 70 years ago. During the CBS 11 News journey with them last week, there were smiles, tears, and moments were there were simply no words.
Return To D-Day: H HourThose attending the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy on Friday will be on hallowed ground, surrounded by the headstones of those who, unfortunately, did not return.
Return To D-Day: The SaluteAs we walked down toward Omaha beach, there weren't many words. Just ahead, the cold, imposing body of water looks no different than it did 70 years ago, our men tell me.
Return To D-Day: Gut Wrenching BeautyI have been here three times now. I still cannot walk into the American Cemetery in Colleville Sur Mer without my eyes watering. It is stunning, sobering, moving.
Return To D-Day: "The War Is Over"
Return To D-Day: The Monuments MenEverywhere we go, every person our D-Day heroes have spoken to, the words “thank you” are ever-present. If you’ve never been here, it’s hard to understand the sincere gratitude that exists in this part of the world.
Return To D-Day: From Fair Fight To AtrocityIt was a short winding ride through the north side of Bastogne, to reach the former home of the 101st Airborne today. The Battle of the Bulge base of operations for the screaming eagles, and housing, that now stands frozen in time.
Return To D-Day: And So It BeginsWe’re eight hours from landing in France. We’re a lifetime from the war we’re going to remember. But looking at their faces as I walk the aisle of the airplane, I know it will all soon come back.
