Veteran Albert Nolan, who lived in Rhyl as he trained to join the war effort, was in Normandy today for the D-Day 70th anniversary commemorations.
He told our reporter: "It takes me back, when I'm standing here. I feel proud of myself - and proud of all the people around us."
Ted Owens, from Pembroke Dock, was wounded as a teenage commando, taking part in D-Day on 6 June 1944.
He was hit by shrapnel from an exploding shell, and spent time recovering back in Britain, before serving again during the Second World War.
Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the landings, he told us "it is very, very important to remember" what happened in Normandy, and all of those servicemen who were lost.

The weather has been pretty dry and bright - and the weather, 70 years ago today, on 6 June 1944, was very similar.
This hand-drawn chart from the day - not the computer-generated one of modern times - shows how the area of low pressure which brought turbulent conditions the day before had slipped down towards the North Sea.
High pressure had started to build, which means conditions were much more settled - although not altogether perfect.
The boys in the Channel faced brisk north-westerly winds and there were choppy conditions in the water for landing.
But the tide was at the right level - and that meant they were good to go. The weather was one of the biggest unknowns that day - it could have changed everything.
The next day the weather turned and conditions were terrible again. 70 years on, it is set to do exactly the same - history repeating itself.
