6/5- KATE, WOULD YOU RATHER BE AT YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT IN NEW JERSEY WITH YOUR FAMILY OR ON A LANDING BARGE STAGING A NORMANDY RE-ENACTMENT?
CATHERINE O’NEILL, the only uniformed American service person ever to get promoted from Sergeant to General in one day, is festering to talk about the 70th anniversary of the Normandy invasion. (That “sergeant-to-general” bit is technically true, but there’s an angle!) Barry had already booked Robert Rodriguez, the blind historian, for the anniversary, tomorrow night, but our landing barges were bobbing up and down in the stormy English Channel 70 years ago TONIGHT, awaiting orders to proceed which never came. So, this anniversary is a double-header!
