NORMANDY (WHAS11) -- The world will pause on Friday and remember the sacrifices made 70 years ago by tens of thousands of forces from across the globe.

D-Day marks the day when troops stormed the beaches of Normandy.

Some who survived the day said their memories are fresh, almost like the invasion happened just yesterday.

John Becker from our sister station in Knoxville is in Normandy with more on the build-up to the anniversary and two veterans who are making the return trip.
