It's the second of two programs featuring oral history recordings from D-Day veterans, being heard for the first time ever on radio or television. This week, hear the stories of U.S. Army Sgt. Jerry Eads, who led a field artillery crew landing on Omaha Beach at Normandy 60 years ago; also Army infantryman George Roach, an assistant flamethrower who was among the first soldiers to land on the beach. Recordings courtesy of the Peter S. Kalikow World War II Oral History Archive at the Eisenhower Center for American Studies, University of New Orleans, Metropolitan College and housed at the National D-Day Museum in New Orleans.
