Seventy six years ago today, the allied troops invaded the coast of normandy.

Thousands of troops died on d- day, and many of their fellow soldier still have those memories.

Our savannah gaido talked to a world war ii veteran who has who fought during d-day savannah,?

Cash, bradford freeman is a man of few words, but the stories he shared are unforgettable- ranging from how he joined the bare troops to how he got to reunite with a young boy he met during the war.

"when we went there, it was sad.

We had americans volunteering and leave.

They made you sick."

94-year-old bradford freeman remembers well serving in world war ii...particularly his role in normandy on d-day.

He recalls being dropped in a cow pastured and meeting a young boy..and their exchange.

"we asked him if we had any candy, because we usually had a little candy, and if we had candy wed give it to the children.

I dont know , that was a great thing we would do for the children.

And i asked him "did you get any candy?"

A nd he says "candy?"

Freeman says when a doctor came to help offer help to him and his friend, he made sure his fellow soldier was taken care of first.

"he went to come on over and cutting on my bricheted leg, and i told him no im from the south boy ill be okay, go over there and take care of him.

He was crying because he was hurting and i wasnt really i wasnt hurting because it didn't hit a bone or anything, just got a liter into it."

Memories from long ago that continue to make freeman proud of his service.

Several years later, freeman went back to europe to visit and told me how he meet the same boy that he met in the cow pasture.

That little boy is now eighty one years old.
