Farewell to vet who wouldn’t be denied D-Day ceremony

We bid farewell today to Bernard Jordan who has died at age 90.

You may recall him from his escapade last year when he went AWOL from his senior citizens home in England and showed up in France to commemorate D-Day.

“I was going across to pay my respects,” he said. “I was a bit off course but I got there.”

Mr Jordan, a former Royal Navy veteran, had vowed to return to Normandy this year, Daily Mail said.
