A story that needs to be told

Delmar man hopes D-Day ceremony will become an annual tradition

— DeSorbo said his goal is to not only honor the veterans he finds, but to also pass on knowledge about the event and first-hand accounts to younger generations. The local D-Day Revisited group is now working with the National D-Day Memorial Foundation in Bedford, Va. to compile a national database of D-Day veterans with profiles written about the survivors.

“I think as time goes on, the stories don’t get told and they are forgotten about,” he said. “These people are not going to be around too much longer and its not just the military stories, but their life’s stories as well that should be told. I do it because who else is doing it?

To attend the event, or if you know a D-Day veteran, contact Frank DeSorbo by calling 439-9265 or by email at fomservice@aol.com.
