Richard Fazzio, D-Day, Omaha Beach, 1st Wave, Podcast.
Richard Fazzio was a U.S. Navy Coxswain on June 6, 1944, piloting a Higgins Boat onto Omaha Beach in the 1st wave. He was carrying more than 30 soldiers of the 1st Infantry Division towards one of the most heavily defended sections of Omaha Beach. When the ramp went down on his landing craft all hell broke loose. It’s a sight Richard has never been able to completely remove from his mind, nor will he.
