Young-at-heart D-Day veteran at 105: ‘Who could imagine I’d still be around 75 years later?’

When Sam Sachs was a determined 29-year-old Army captain preparing to fight German troops in World War II as part of the massive Normandy invasion on D-Day, June 6, 1944, the last thing on his mind was surviving to a young-at-heart 105 and getting birthday greetings from thousands of people. Sachs was the lead officer in a glider with the grim nickname of “Flying Coffin” because it had no weapons to protect itself from enemy fire. His glider was filled with machine guns, ammunition and eight sol...
