Harold Terens, 100, and his fiancé Jeanne Swerlin, 96, plan to marry in June


Good morning, I'm Leila Fadel. A hundred-year-old Harold Terens and his fiancee, 96-year-old Jeanne Swerlin, are in love. They plan to get married in June in France, on the beach. But not just any beach - a beach Terens has visited before as a 20-year-old in the U.S. Army when he was part of the U.S. forces that landed on the beaches of Normandy, France, during World War II to liberate the country from Nazi control. This June, the two will say their vows 80 years after D-Day. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
