This vet's story will inspire you!
Looking for a little inspiration to kick start your day? Look no further. Les Cruise, a 92-year-old D-Day veteran, relives his experiences as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division in this short film by National Geographic and they're incredible.
Go ahead, try and keep a dry eye through the whole thing.
Cruise is one of the few surviving veterans who made their way into the legendary battles at Normandy via parachute.
The beginning of Cruise's story is pretty sad, as he was abandoned and raised in an orphanage. However, it's amazing to see how life turned out for him after the war. It sounds like a feature-length movie could be made about this guy's life!
Cruise is the very definition of an American hero. Thank you for your service and for inspiring us today!
