D-Day Memorial to add sailor’s name — 68 years later

Amin Isbir

The National D-Day Memorial is set to honor a sailor today who died 68 years ago this day on Omaha Beach — but whose death was incorrectly  listed for decades as coming two days later.  In recent years, a descendant documented the actual date of death, and today, the National D-Day Memorial will add Amin Isbir’s name to the 4,400 other Allied soldiers killed in the invasion. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
