It's the first of two weeks of programs featuring oral history recordings from D-Day veterans, being heard for the first time ever on radio or television. This week, hear the stories of Lt. Roger Airgood, a U.S. Army Air Corps pilot who dropped some of the Army paratroopers on the beach at Normandy 60 years ago; also U.S. Army Tech. Sgt. Malvin Pike, who was among the first wave of soldiers to land on the beach from watercraft. Recordings courtesy of the Peter S. Kalikow World War II Oral History Archive at the Eisenhower Center for American Studies, University of New Orleans, Metropolitan College and housed at the National D-Day Museum in New Orleans.
