It’s been 70 years since Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France for what many historians call the most important event of the 20th century.

Wendell Ellenwood grew up in southern Ohio and attended Ohio State University before enlisting.

Ellenwood earned a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star in World War II. He spoke with WOSU’s Steve Brown about that fateful day in 1944.
