Remembering our fallen military heroes who chose selfless acts of bravery in securing freedom for others. Filmed on this occasion were 102 year-old Santiago Diaz, a medic at the Battle of Guadalcanal, one of the bloodiest of WWII, who earned his citizenship while at war, and 98 year-old Sgt Major Robert Blaknit, landing on Omaha Beach at Normandy with 900 men under his command on D-Day, June 6, 1944. View their inspiring and moving stories of service.
