70 years after D-Day, families remember area veterans who missed the big anniversary

Only about 1 million of approximately 16.1 million World War II veterans still will be alive as of Sept. 30, according to a Department of Veterans Affairs estimate. In obituaries, their families highlighted their roles in the Normandy invasion on June 6, 1944. But just as important as their war stories are the family stories they built in the 70 years since then.
