72 years later, WWII hero Les Cruise flies again on the same plane from D-Day. This time his family boarded with him. While he is one of the last surviving D-Day paratroopers, Cruise’s story is not only about his historic jump. It’s also about his familial journey: from orphan to great-grandfather.
