One man lays wreaths in Normandy on this unusual D-Day

With the coronavirus pandemic preventing people from traveling, this year's D-Day commemoration is a very different event.
For families anguished that they can not be in Normandy themselves, an Englishman who lives there is laying wreaths on their behalf.
Steven Oldrid says it is an honor to do it. He is also filming ceremonies and wreath layings for the families.
In return, he gets their grateful thanks — and a few items of British food in the mail.
