A veteran of D-Day was honored Friday on the 70th Anniversary of the invasion.
Bob Cohen, 90, was honored at Beth Israel Hospital Friday, where he's being treated for heart issues.
The head of the hospital presented the World War II veteran with a plaque and thanked him for his service.
Cohen was a Private in the Army when he landed on the shores of Normandy.
He described the day as being on a scale never seen before in battle.
"We had about 150,000 of us landing on D-Day. The sky full of paratroopers, bombers. The German forces said it would be the longest day. Believe me it was a long, long day," Cohen said.
Cohen served with the 83rd Infantry, which was responsible for liberating concentration camps in eastern Europe as the war was ending.
