Program Description

Event Details

Eighty years ago, on June 6, 1944, the United States and its allies launched the largest amphibious invasion in military history to free Europe from the Nazis. Over 80 men who called Licking County home participated that day in the air, land and sea. This program shares the stories of these men on that fateful day.
