In this two picture combo, eighty-nine-year-old Roland Chaisson is seen at right, and as a 19-year-old corporal at left, who stormed Normandy on D-Day when Germans killed half his squad before they could reach shore, in Metairie, La., Thursday, June 5, 2014. Chaisson is among D-Day veterans who will describe that day Friday and Saturday at the National World War II Museum. More than 15 hours of observances are planned Friday, the invasion’s 70th anniversary. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert) less
