  • On 3 June 1984 at Argus Leader On June 6, 1944, 176,000 troops stormed onto Normandy Beach to liberate France from Hitler's hold. It is a day forever etched in the nation's memory known, simply, as D-Day: Myron Abraham, 62, was 22 when he waded through the green sea towards Omaha Beach, where the French Continent Peninsula sticks its big thumb into the Atlantic Ocean. He spent the night in a foxhole and faced his first German fire the next day. They were South Dakotans at Normandy on D-Day - scared soldiers among the 176,00 troops who stormed the shore June 6, 1944, to liberate France and smash Hitler's Festung Europa. Abraham, a Beresford native, is a husky man with a gentle laugh, now retired and living at 812 W. Madison St., in Sioux Falls. He has outgrown his Army uniform and keeps a purple heart in a lockbox as a reminder of the shrapnel that pierced his left leg along a road in Germany four months after the invasion. Abraham had previous battle experience under Patton in Sicily but was scared when he jumped into the water at Normandy. "If you don't have fear, you're crazy," he says. "You didn't know from one minute to the next if you're going to be dead or alive.. I was on the second wave, and that's the only reason I'm here. The first wave got pretty well wiped out."3
  • He lived in 1990 at 1230 N Dakota Avenue, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
