Back in June of 1944, Nazi troops and Allied Forces clashed in Western Europe ... and more than six decades later, the battle is being re-lived right here at home. About two hundred men are paying tribute to that day in history by re-enacting the Battle of Normandy. The guns, fighting, and even the deaths arent real, b ut these men know that 63 years ago it was all too real for the soldiers fighting overseas. Mark Virgin is playing a US soldier and says, "We cant experience the terror they went through, but possibly some of the discomfort they went through carrying all the equipment. I just hope to honor them with my presence here and how I conduct myself." Retired Master Sergeant James Goodall helped organize the re-enactment. He says it takes a lot of work to put this together, he spent about a year working out the details. Goodall says, "Well last year we did the battle and as soon as it was over, i started planning this one. communicating, writing letters, just like putting together a regular operation." Goodall hopes this operation brings an important piece of history to life, for the people watching, as well as the men participating.
