(WIAT) — Thursday, or D-Day, is the 69th anniversary of 150,000 Allied soldiers landing on the shores of Normandy, France.

WWII veteran Hardie Cornett talks about his experiences in the war and what it’s like to be among a few remaining WWII vets in Cullman County.

Residents say days like Thursday should also be a reminder to honor all WWII vets.

They are a precious resource.

As they pass away, we lose pieces of history that we can never get back.
