    LibraryYOU - Robert Watson, D-Day Survivor

    LibraryYOU - Robert Watson, D-Day Survivor

    Eighteen year old Watson landed with the first wave of the U.S. forces to hit Omaha Beach in Normandy, France at 7:27 am on June 6, 1944. He survived being blown up and wounded when his landing craft was destroyed by a mine that killed 50 of the 75 men on board. In spite of his wounds, he served for 28 days as a U.S. Navy Beach Master.

    Now 87 years old, Watson says that as long as he is able, he will continue to tell the story of the men who didn’t make it back. "What keeps me going are the 9,336 fine young American boys buried in that cemetery over there. The story of Omaha Beach needs to be told to honor all of the men who did not survive the invasion or the war."
