Local veteran remembers D-Day

Some World War Two veterans are at the EAA in Oshkosh today, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

Bud Edwards of Oshkosh didn't land on the shore of France that day, but some of his fellow soldiers in the 430th anti-aircraft group were there. Edwards says he joined the fight, five days later. Edwards says they couldn't land right away, because the tide was out, and German planes were bombing them, while they were stuck in the water. He says it was a relief to reach dry land.

The EAA is holding another event at 7 p.m. tonight. A member of General Patton's headquarters team will talk about his experiences.
