For many people, their introduction into WWII history came through the movie Saving Private Ryan. Captain Miller, played by Tom Hanks, and his men are depicted as being in C Company of the 2nd Ranger Battalion which landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day. In this episode, we're going with Erik Dorr to the very spot where the men of C Company landed on June 6th to look at an artifact of a man who was killed by German gunfire on the beach.
