Marion Robert Goff was a young man who went to fight in World War II. He was there on D-Day, the day meant the war would be over soon. It wasn’t long after this day that Germany surrendered. On the anniversary of D-Day, we remember what the soldiers went through.
The D-Day invasion began on June 6, 1944. American, British, and Canadian troops landed on beaches in France, to fight the Germans.
Goff was later captured by the Germans. One of his captors was a former POW he had saved. The German told his fellow soldiers he was “returning the favor and was doing his part to get this honorable soldier back home.”
A Changed Man
He was thin and suffered from nightmares. But he found that happy laugh and generous spirit once again, giving everyone he met a hearty greeting.
