D-Day veteran recalls historic day

William James was 21, a young man from Albany serving on an English freighter on June 5th, 1944. When the 6th dawned, he saw ships all around his. He estimates his company was three miles from Utah beach, where his company unloaded ammunition onto smaller boats - a job he says took about four days.

After the war James eventually got a job with the government and has been retired 33 years, now living in Guilderland.

Asked what he thinks about having been one of the people who helped make the invasion possible, James says, "I guess I'm pretty proud of myself. Most troops will say that, most veterans will tell you they're pretty proud of what they did and what they accomplished. But you end up saying, 'I was damned lucky because I made it back,' and you think about the one that don't."
