PV's Rasmussen reminisces about D-Day night jump
Editor's Note: June 6, 1944 about 150,000 men took part in the World War II operation, D-Day, the beginning of the end of Adolph Hitler's domination of Europe. About 10,000 men died storming the beaches of Normandy and jumping into the French countryside. Europe surrendered to the Allies less than a year later. This year marks the 60th anniversary of that invasion.
Andy Rasmussen is one of the original "Filthy Thirteen," a group of World War II paratroopers who trained ferociously and refused to bathe and shave for about six months in preparation for D-Day.
