Emails from France reveal a father's D-Day horror and the hospitality that followed

Growing up, Kirk Vail always knew his dad was a United States Coast Guard veteran and had been in Normandy during D-Day, but that was it -- his dad never talked about his service and Kirk never asked. After receiving an unsolicited email from Frenchman in March 2014, he was finally able to start piecing together parts of his dad's life in France during 1944-45, giving him a whole new appreciation for his dad's service.
