Florida Matters: 70th Anniversary of D-Day

Friday, June 6 marked the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the historic military landing at Normandy during World War II. We take a look at D-Day through the eyes of a C-47 pilot who was there. Retired First Lt. Gerald “Bud” Berry was among those who flew paratroopers behind enemy lines in the hours before the beach invasion.

Our panel also includes MacDill AFB 6th Air Mobility Wing Historian William Polson and Gary Mormino, an author and retired USF History Professor who is now with the Florida Humanities Council.
