A World War II veteran from Omaha will return this week to Europe to commemorate a tragedy in the run-up to D-Day.
“It's going to bring back memories, I'm sure,” said Edward Sobczyk, 94, a former Boys Town postmaster and a longtime College World Series ticket-seller. “They're not all great memories. Most of 'em are bad.”
