DES MOINES, Iowa - As countries around the world stop to remember the sacrifices made during the D-Day landings 70 years ago, we went through our archives.

Ten years ago, Channel 13 anchor Pat Dix interviewed Alvin Andersen.

The Des Moines resident was a World War II Army Veteran and landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day with the 149th Engineers.

The interview was never aired.

Alvin passed away in July, 2013 aged 98 but his story of that historic day lives on in these recordings.
