Seventy-five years ago, the U.S. landing craft Control 60 helped to carry the first waves of U.S. service members as they landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy, France, on what has become known as D-Day. The American flag from that ship is bound for the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of American History, thanks to two men from the Netherlands who bought it at auction to present it to the American people in gratitude.
