Day of Days June 6, 1944: American Soldiers Remember - War Comes Home Film Festival As we remember Pearl Harbor, on Tuesday we will remember another day in our veterans' history. Join us for the film Day of Days June 6, 1944: American Soldiers Remember and a short talk on the Veterans History Project at 6:00PM in the Main Library Auditorium. Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landing this film brought together American D-Day veterans to share their experiences from that fateful day, with their testimony yielding long-buried and often painful, vivid memories. They recount their transformations from boys to men, reveal their uneasiness with the term "hero," and grapple with why they survived when so many others did not.
