Eight North Texas D-Day veterans, who had not returned to Normandy or met until this trip, reached back into their dark past grasping for answers. Why did I live? Why did he die? What is my purpose? Did I do a good job with the life that was saved? Most found the answers they were looking for, thanks to the nonprofit Daughters of WWII who raised $75,000 to send them to Normandy to say thank you, we have not forgotten you.
