Tremont WWII vet recaps trip to Normandy

TREMONT (HOI) – A trip back in time for a WWII veteran.

Tremont native Gene Neeley spoke to a crowd Tuesday night at the United Methodist Church in his hometown.

Not only did the 94 year old serve in World War II, he recently returned to the shores of Normandy, France to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Neeley returned from that trip to France earlier this month.

Tremont welcomed him home with a fire and police escort.
