“So they don’t forget what we had to go through”

Veterans Day is November 11th and what better way to honor our veterans than to listen to their stories? In this powerful interview with World War II veteran Frank Devita, he talks about his experiences on D-Day and how his service impacted his life. Because his job was to operate the ramp on his boat, some of the scenes he describes are very intense and difficult to listen to. It took many years for Mr. Devita to feel comfortable talking about his war experiences and he credits reporter Tom Brokaw for helping him get there.

  1. I am six minutes into this wonderful interview. “People make a big deal out of D Day. It was only eighteen hours long.” My mother would love his man. That was how it was. I have saved the rest watch for later. Thank you!
