George S. Wills can still hear his father's voice, 60 years later, summoning his family to the kitchen radio in the predawn hours of June 6, 1944, to hear the news of the invasion of Normandy. The first radio reports announcing that Allied troops had landed on the northern coast of France arrived at 3:32 a.m. Eastern War Time by way of a trans-Atlantic radio hookup direct from Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's headquarters. Wills, who lived on the grounds of McDonogh School where his father directed the school's agricultural training programs, recalled the other day hearing President Franklin D. Roosevelt's prayer for the fighting forces.
