WDBJ7 aired “The D-Day Invasion: Bedford’s Burden” in 2009 during our coverage of the 65th anniversary of the Normandy landing.

The program documented Bedford’s sacrifice in 1944 and followed D-Day veterans as they returned to Normandy 50 years later.

Hosted by former WDBJ7 Anchor Keith Humphry, the program included interviews that first aired in 1994.

In these segments, we hear from the telegraph operator in Bedford who received the casualty reports, and D-Day veterans from western Virginia return to Normandy for the 50th anniversary.
