Emil DeDonato | 47th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division - Army

4:18   |   It was D plus four when Emil DeDonato waded ashore at Utah Beach. It was quiet by then and his unit moved inland. When they advanced to Cherbourg and entered a huge German pillbox, they found a bounty of provisions which was appreciated very much, especially the cognac.
