Leaving behind the Little Man
Thomas Blakey was haunted for most of his life by memories from D-Day. At 23-years-old, he was a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division and dropped behind enemy lines in Normandy around 1am on the morning of June 6, 1944. He never told a soul of his torment for fear of being seen as a coward. It made him angry and antagonistic. One day he woke to realize there had been a big change.
