On D-Day, June 6, 1944, the green 29th Infantry Division faced some of the most brutal fighting on Omaha Beach.
In June of 2014, a handful of remaining members of the 29th Infantry Division made a final trip back to Normandy to recognize the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
Also prominately featured in this film is a soldier from the First Infantry Division (the Big Red One), who came ashore just down the beach and alongside the 29th Infantry on D-Day .
Naval Combat Demolition Unit (NCDU) “frogman” Ernie Corvese also came ashore on Omaha Beach. Ernie’s 8 man crew had the mission of clearing obstacles on Omaha before the invasion began. Of the 8 men in his crew, Ernie was the only one to survive.
On June 4, 2014 Ernie made his first return to Omaha Beach since that Day of Days in 1944.
