Local D-Day survivor recounts experiences

Norwalk resident Dale Ebinger survived D-Day, which occurred 70 years ago today.

On June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile path of a heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany forces on Normandy, France's beaches.

A total of 124 enlisted in Ebinger's company -- the First Engineer Brigade 3516 Ordnance Maintenance Company.

Four are alive today, including Ebinger. A story about him and his experiences appears on the front page of Friday's Norwalk Reflector.
