This may just be the most incredible story we’ve heard all year!

 

Her Husband Went Missing In WWII. 68 Years Later She Uncovered A MAJOR Revelation

 

Billie Harris went down over Northern France during WWII when his plane was shot down. For decades after that his widow was told misinformation after misinformation.

 

But the situation on the ground in France couldn’t have been further from that! This is a story you’ll NEVER forget!

Nice one Loader! I have been to Normandy and the American Cemetery many times. It is sobering! My grandfather was in the invasion as part of the first wave and survived. I would like to point out something I saw in this video. Notice when they show his grave marker (the cross) that his name is clearly visible in what looks like gold lettering. This is CGI and is not how the marker appears normally. There is no paint or dye used in the actual letters. They appear white and are simply carved in the marble. I realize this is done in videos of the cemetery lately to help the lettering stand out so the viewer can read it. But, I just want to point out that the only crosses that have gold lettering are the one that are Medal of Honor recipients. I am sure that the people who do this CGI do not know this and subsequently no disrespect is intended. I just wanted to point that out.

 

That was a great video, thanks for sharing.

Yes im aware my father is buried in a Soldier circle where the center starts the Revolutionary War and then each circle outwards is each War as they happened in time.....I visited there many times to just walk amungst the graves and in great detail they are carved and warn with time and all white with no color..The story I post is amazing as Reddog says he gave his life to freedom and us and she gave hers to him only to find out that his life was worth more to many then even unto her.....Beautiful legacy
