Documentary Feature Will Tell Story of WWII Veteran On His Journey Back

Posted: Updated:

Seventy years ago today, tens of thousands of American soldiers, sailors and airmen, along with thousands of allied troops, stormed the beaches of Normandy in Operation Overlord — D-Day — and saved the world. We remember, and give thanks.

1.2 million World War II veterans are still alive today. The government estimates they are dying at a rate of more than 500 a day and a local group of young film-makers are making it their mission to make sure we celebrate our guys.

Normandy: A World Apart is a documentary feature that tells the story of a veteran on his journey back to the shores of Omaha Beach.

Veteran Harry Snyder and the documentary's director Britt Rawcliffe came to Good Day Philadelphia to spread the about their mission.
