Remembering D-Day - Article Photos 1/5

This photograph taken on June 7, 1944 shows PFC Art Levine (far right) with other soldiers from the 501st regiment of the 101st Division being welcomed by townspeople in the French village of Ste. Marie-du-Mont after American forces drove German troops from the city. Levine said only a few hours after this photo was taken, a German sniper killed the soldier in the center of the photo, talking to the women. Levine isolated the building where the sniper fire came from and went into the building, tossed a grenade in a room where he was hiding, killing the German soldier.
