We've all heard of D-Day, but Odessan Robert Propp was there.
Part of the 82nd airborne, he jumped into North Africa, Sicily, and finally into France as part of the D-Day landing.
Propp fought in the Battle of the Bulge, was wounded, and received a Purple Heart.
In addition to serving his country, he also found love overseas, meeting his future wife Florence as she worked as a nurse in training at the royal infirmary.
Eventually they would come to Texas, and she would become a US citizen.
Today they have four kids, nine grandkids, and fifteen great grandchildren.
