D-Day has always been extremely emotional to me (”‘It was tough’: WWII veterans return to Utah Beach to commemorate D-Day,” June 5).
My dad was a ham radio operator with a big heart. Our home was opened day and night with a stream of parents coming through our door to talk to their beloved sons overseas. So, on this 79th anniversary of D-Day, I want to thank my dad, call sign W3IRA, for his compassion, kindness and the love of his country.
