The Bell County Museum’s observance of the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion will feature a riveting program on this extraordinary time in history. 

Retired Army Col. Renita Foster Menyhert will present “One Paratrooper’s Journey into D-Day.” Menyhert is a former military feature writer and broadcaster who has worked for worldwide publications such as Soldier’s Magazine and the Armed Forces News Service.

The free program will be at 6 p.m. Friday in the museum, 201 N. Main St., Belton. 

D-Day signaled the start of the Allies’ invasion of Western Europe in June 1944, and a crucial turning point in the war with Nazi Germany. On D-Day alone, 3,000 Allied troops died and an estimated 9,000 were wounded or missing.
