The one D-Day remembrance you really should watch

If you watch just one D-Day memorial out there, please watch the video of 91 year old Henry Parham on the PG Website

Remarkable for so many reasons, but demographics being what they are, there can't be more than 200 Black men over the age of 91 in Allegheny County these days. So just being able to make that interview is a feat unto itself.

Thanks to you and the PG for that marvelous piece of history. I enjoyed hearing Mr. Parham's first hand account of his unit's participation in the war.

French deserve some kudos for giving him a Legion of Honor.
