CATONSVILLE, Md. — A 95-year-old WWII veteran shared his D-Day story at a special celebration held for on him Thursday morning.

Clyde Taylor enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1943. After a few months of training, he was shipped overseas.

His unit was stationed in the English Channel when the bombing began.

"From the moment we landed in Liverpool, England we were bombed day and night," said Taylor. "It was a rough time. Everybody, you know, you've never seen it before. Everybody was so scared, but they did what they had to do. We're very lucky, our unit very lucky. We only lost one solider."

The celebration was held at Double-T Diner in Catonsville to thank Taylor for his service.
