Episode 6 of Heartsong Fit With Vickie Maris is a special tribute on the 70th anniversary of D-Day (WWII) to Lt. Col. James R. Maris and the men and women who fought for freedom in WWII. Lt. Col. Maris flew 30 missions in a B-24 bomber. His second mission was D-Day. You will hear his recounting of that day as read by his daughter Vickie.

In this episode, she also reads the story of Mission 23 which she wrote in conjunction with her dad for a posting on the website for the 392nd bomb group. Vickie is now working on the completion of her dad's memoirs. She is interviewing her mom, Lucille Maris, in order to add the perspective of a stateside bride during WWII. You can hear some of Lucille's stories at the end of several of the episodes of Heartsong Fit.

To all those who have served or who are serving in the military for the U.S. and its allies, we salute you. God bless.
