D-Day event to unveil ghost soldiers memorial

The Museum of American Armor will mark the 76th anniversary of the D-Day invasion this weekend with the unveiling of a new permanent memorial.

Three “ghost soldiers,” commissioned in Britain, will be positioned on the bow of a landing craft to memorialize the heroes who came ashore at Normandy during World War II.

The unveiling of the memorial at noon on Saturday, June 6, will be preceded by a procession of armor and nearly a dozen Long Island families holding photos of their World War II veterans on the grounds of the museum at 1303 Round Swamp Road in Old Bethpage.
