Dwindling group recalls D-Day

Stowe Reporter - 9:02 am Fri Jun 6th, 2014

This will be Albert Sponheimer Jr.'s final trip to the bluffs and ruined battlements of Omaha Beach.

He arrived for the first time early on D-Day, June 6, 1944, riding a half-track onto a beach alive with German shells, carpeted with dead and dying soldiers.

He was just 19, a terrified medic equipped with morphine, bandages and not much else.
