In Honor of D-Day

In honoring D-Day, I am reposting this audio vignette from Wayne Mills. I met Wayne, a World War II veteran, in Broken Bow. “War is Hell,” Wayne said. “I wish we didn’t have to do it. There were many wonderful and warm aspects to Wayne Mills, though this vignette focuses on his experiences as a veteran. Wayne told me, “… They called for us to go down into central France, down south of Strasbourg, it would be in eastern France. And we got into combat down there. And I got wounded the first day. Well, I got shot with a machine gun, which several of us did at the time. And I spent about a month in the hospital, then went back up into Germany after that. I was up in Germany when the war ended.”
