Photo detail

Saturday will probably be the last time World War II veterans William Doyle, 94, and Sam Krauss, 92, both members of the famed 29th Infantry Division, are able to visit the Normandy coast where 65 years ago they landed as soldiers unsure they'd survive. The two men, who met about 25 years ago at a veterans reunion, live in a retirement community in Catonsville, Md., down the hall from each other.
