D-Day Warriors: It Was Our War Too| 58m
Documentary | United States
Seventy-five years after D-Day, on Omaha Beach in Normandy, France, one of the last surviving Native American D-Day veterans remembers his fellow soldiers in his traditional way – with ceremony, prayer, and through storytelling. Charles Shay, Penobscot Indian, was just 19 years old when he landed on Omaha Beach in the first wave as a medic on June 6th, 1944. Travelling back to Omaha Beach each year with a delegation of Native American veterans, he honors those who gave their all that day and continues to pave the path to healing across generations and ethnicities.
