70th Anniversary of D-Day

In this two picture combo, eighty-nine-year-old Roland Chaisson is seen at right, and as a 19-year-old corporal at left, who stormed Normandy on D-Day when Germans killed half his squad before they could reach shore, in Metairie, La., Thursday, June 5, 2014. Chaisson is among D-Day veterans who will describe that day Friday and Saturday at the National World War II Museum. More than 15 hours of observances are planned Friday, the invasion's 70th anniversary.
