    Machine gun rounds and hot metal shards buzzed through the air like thousands of lethal hornets, menacing the shivering, terrified American soldiers upon whom the fate of the Normandy invasion would be decided.
    Quentin Murdock, who calls St. George, Utah, his home most of the year, can never forget those harrowing minutes on Omaha Beach June 6, 1944, as the 1st Infantry Division attempted to breach German coastal defenses in the first large-scale invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe.
    It's amazing he survived this ordeal. I have written Quentin's story and it is here for anyone interested to read.
