Veteran glided in behind enemy
lines on D-Day
June 6 was the 74th anniversary of D-Day, when we pay tribute to those who made the
ultimate sacrifice at Normandy and honor those who lived to fight another
day. Here is the story of one brave Veteran who was there.
Army Veteran got his life – and
his daughter back – thanks to VA’s Compensated Work Therapy program
Across from Craig Robbins’ desk in his
large office in the VA Palo Alto carpentry building is a picture of his
daughter at her eighth grade graduation. For Robbins, pictured above, that
photo is more than office décor, it’s a reminder of what pushed him to change his life for the
better years ago.
