Of ALL Things to NOT Forget

The Story with Ashley Bryan

Ashley Bryan never mentioned the fact that he was in the segregated army during WWII and landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day – for a very long time.

Here is the NPR/APM interview from 2013 in Chapel Hill, NC when he spoke to Dick Gordon about this. Dick realized, in the moment, that this story had to get on the air quickly because Ashley taped it on June 5th. It aired on June 7th, 2013. Please have a listen.
