Vets gather at WWII museum to remember D-Day

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Guy Gunter couldn’t forget June 6, 1944 if he had to. At 1 a.m. that day, Gunter was piloting a glider carrying 15 soldiers in the Normandy invasion, which turned the tide of World War II in Europe and eventually forced the surrender of Germany less than a year later.
